University of Akron Key Developments
University of Akron Pays Thousands to Settle Broken Leases
Dec 7 15
The University of Akron has paid thousands of dollars to landlords to settle leases broken by students who left the school after the baseball program was eliminated. Most of the 27 players who withdrew from the university were released from residence hall and off-campus leases. But some landlords demanded payment, especially if they could not find other tenants, according to documents filed in the Ohio Court of Claims. The father of one former player, who was sued by his landlord for breaking the lease, filed an action against UA in the Court of Claims, which hears cases against state agencies. UA agreed to reimburse Rick Simonton the $3,420.29 he paid the landlord to settle a lawsuit in Summit County Common Pleas Court.
