1998 Suit Settled

The AP is reporting that the suit betwwen former soccer player Melissa Jennings and her former coach, Anson Dorrance, was settled for $385,000. The UNC Trustees approved the settlement last week. Reactions?




I believe that if the University felt that it and Coach Dorrance had done nothing wrong they should have vigorously defended both. And if there was any wrongdoing they should have publicly admitted it along with the settlement. I think the apology from the Coach and the settlement suggests that these were not frivolous charges but there has been no admission of wrongdoing, as far as I can tell, on the part of either the University or the Coach.

In Ruth Sheehan's column in today's N&O she also expresses
her doubts.
