JMU = Defendant
Following up on earlier post here to note that, indeed, Equity in Athletics has added James Madison University as a defendant in its lawsuit challenging the school's decision to cut ten sports teams. EIA had given JMU an ultimatum: postpone the cuts or defend a lawsuit. I think JMU was wise to choose the latter, as it does not seem likely that EIA's lawsuit will restore the cut teams and a postponement would raise false hopes and keep the student athletes in limbo.
