Judge Denies Injunction in Case of D.C. Law Prof Denied Tenure After 25 Years

BrownBlog of the Legal Times:  In Tenure Fight, Judge Denies Injunction to Ex-Law Professor in D.C.:

A Washington federal district judge today denied a preliminary injunction request by a former professor at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law who sued the school after she was denied tenure and fired.

U.S. District Judge Richard Leon didn't rule on the merits of Stephanie Brown's lawsuit, but found that she had waited too long to file her complaint to argue now that she would suffer immediate and irreparable harm without a court order.

Brown worked at the law school for 25 years as an administrator and law professor, according to her complaint. In 2009, she applied for tenure and promotion. The law school's Faculty Evaluation and Retention Committee voted in favor of her application and it was endorsed by law school Dean Katherine Broderick, but the application was ultimately denied in 2011.
