JMU case not quite stagnant

Equity in Athletics presented its case to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this week. EIA is attempting to overturn the decision (made in 2006 and carried out in 2007) by James Madison University to cut 10 intercollegiate sports. EIA is trying to get its lawsuit against JMU restored. EIA's attempt to force JMU to reinstate the teams has already failed at the district and appellate court level and the US Supreme Court refused to hear the case. JMU's lawyer is confident that the case, according to one writer, "will remain stagnant."
