Hearing scheduled in alum. suit
Chris Parker / The Dartmouth Staff
The hearing for the College’s motion for summary judgment in the ongoing alumni lawsuit has been scheduled for Dec. 4. With summary judgment, a judge decides a case without a trial.
The current suit is the second to center on the issue of parity on the College’s Board of Trustees between alumni-elected and Board-selected members. The first suit, brought by the Association of Alumni in October 2007, argued that the Board’s recent decision to add eight Board-selected members violated an 1891 document that the plaintiffs said legally required the Board to maintain parity. The Association withdrew the suit in spring 2008 after alumni opposed to the suit swept all 11 seats in elections to fill the Association’s executive committee.
