Federal District Court Allows Linda Mullenix's Gender Discrimination Equal Pay Claim To Proceed Against The University Of Texas Law School

Following up on my previous posts:

Law360, Court Keeps UT Law Prof's Pay Discrimination Suit Alive:

A federal judge in Texas has ruled that a University of Texas law professor can move forward with her claim that the school paid her less than a male colleague, setting her court case up for a trial later this year [Mullenix v. University of Texas at Austin (WD TX June 10, 2022)].

ABA Journal, Part of Lawsuit Alleging Gender Discrimination at University of Texas at Austin Gets Past Summary Judgment:

The lawsuit, brought by Linda Mullenix, alleges some male faculty members earn significantly more than she. Filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, the lawsuit also claims the men in question have not been law professors as long as Mullenix, have fewer publications and similar student evaluations. Mullenix teaches civil procedure, as do some of the men, according to her action.
