Cincinnati Rowing Litigation Update

The rowing team may have been cut, but its lawsuit against University of Cincinnati moves along in federal court. On Monday the district court judge decided that the case could proceed as a class action lawsuit, concluing that "a class defined as 'all current and future members of the University of Cincinnati women's rowing team' would satisfy the prerequisites of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 for certification of a class."

Civ Pro fans can find the opinion at 2006 WL 3591958.
