University of Iowa Key Developments

University of Iowa Wins $1.41 Million Federal Contract

The University of Iowa won a $1,407,738 federal contract from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Minneapolis, for the services of a surgeon.

The University of Iowa Settles Discrimination Lawsuit

The University of Iowa confirmed that it will pay nearly $200,000 to a male track coach and his attorneys to settle a gender discrimination lawsuit alleging the man was passed over for a job because administrators wanted a woman. Mike Scott, who was a volunteer assistant in the university's track program, applied for the position of assistant track coach in 2012. He believed he was qualified to replace the departing assistant coach - a woman - since he was already working in her areas, including pole vault and vertical jumps. Scott alleges he was warned that administrators wanted a woman and that then-Director of Track and Field Larry Wieczorek even joked that a sex change might improve his prospects. Scott was a finalist, but another male was recommended for the job and rejected by the administration. A second search failed when a preferred female candidate accepted another job. The program then gave Scott an 11-month contract as an assistant, with the understanding that another search would occur after the 2012-2013 season. Scott alleges administrators rewrote the job description, which disqualified him and duplicated other coaches' specialties. Scott didn't apply and the third search failed, so the university again rewrote the description so that it was more general. Scott applied but didn't get an interview for the fourth search. The job went to Molly Jones, who had been a volunteer assistant at Florida State for two years.

University of Iowa to Pay $166,000 Separation Deal

The University of Iowa has agreed to pay $166,000 as part of a separation agreement with a dental professor who had filed a discrimination complaint. Under the agreement finalized, professor of orthodontics Andrew Lidral will assume a half-time appointment in January and then resign his tenured faculty position on July 31. Within 10 days of the resignation, the university will pay Lidral $143,000 and his attorney $23,000. Lidral filed a complaint with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission last year alleging discrimination. The complaint is confidential, and the agreement avoids the possibility that Lidral would pursue a civil lawsuit. The settlement comes amid a flurry of other legal developments.
