Title

Article "UR, law professor settle out of court"

Description

This 1991 Collegian article focuses on a legal battle that was between Harry Snead, a T.C. Williams School of Law professor and the University of Richmond. Snead was suspended from classroom teaching in November 1988 due to his "sexist and racial remarks in the classroom." His lawsuit against the University was on the basis that being suspended from teaching was a violation of his tenured rights. In response, the University demanded that Snead assure the University that he would not make any more sexual or racist remarks, and he refused. Snead explained how "it's mainly blacks, women and certain religious groups that have this fervor to make you say things just the way they want you to say them." The dispute was eventually settled the day of the trial, and the settlement was kept sealed by order of the court. Snead remained as a paid member of the faculty but was not permitted to teach.
