No discrimination found in Jackson State case

Former Jackson State basketball coach Denise Taylor won part of her lawsuit against the university last week. The jury found that there was breach of contract in Taylor's case but did not find evidence of discrimination or retaliation. Taylor, in her claim against her former employer, stated that she was fired after threatening to file a Title IX complaint.
Taylor will received $182,000; the amount left on her contact at the time she was fired. 
None of the published reports discussed the evidence provided at the trial by either side, only that both called former JSU players to testify. the university contended that Taylor had misappropriated funds and engaged in "sexual gender stereotyping."
