Title

Article "UR wins trial, Omar files notice of appeals"

Description

Former business school professor Mohammed Omar, who was denied tenure in the E. Claiborne Robins School of Business, has lost his trial against the University of Richmond in mid-June but has filed a notice of appeals. Omar accused the University of denying him tenure based on his religion and national origin. Gilbert E. Schill Jr., the University’s lawyer, said he expected the decision. Harris Butler, Omar’s lawyer, could not be reached for comment. Rula Omar, Mohammed’s daughter who is handling the appeals case while Mohammed worked in the Middle East, claims that, “A lot of our information was not allowed in the courtroom and a lot of our witnesses were not allowed […] It was fishy.” However, Schill believes that there was “no error” in the process.
