Judge splits up age discrimination case against 6 law schools

Four of the schools will continue with the case in their home districts

U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle split up a hefty age discrimination case against six law schools on Friday, allowing four of the schools to continue proceedings in their home states.

The former state attorney general of North Dakota, Nicholas Spaeth, sued six different law schools that he applied for jobs at in July 2011, accusing them and their officers of violating the Age Discrimination in Employment Act by not offering him a tenure track position. The suit seeks to force each school to offer him a tenure track position and compensate him for future lost wages.
