The case between a former Professor at ISU and the University he used to work for were back in front of a judge Monday.
Attorneys representing both sides have been busy as the case has been split into two segments. The U.S. District Court is handling the allegations made against individuals, and the State Court is handling the allegations made against the University.
The lawsuit filed by Habib Sadid was originally filed last year but was put on hold until a previous lawsuit from the former ISU professor against the school could adjudicated.
The stay on this current case was lifted in February and the attorneys representing Sadid claimed that ISU failed to respond in a timely matter and made the motion for a summary of judgment.
The attorneys representing ISU countered, saying this case was frivolous and that the plaintiff should be required to reimburse the tax payers in the state for the attorney fees that ISU has had to spend defending themselves.
In the end, Judge Naftz sided with ISU. He granted them their request for attorney fees and continued the stay until after the completion of the federal case which is also going on right now.
As for that case, the two sides will be making their arguments in front of the Idaho Supreme Court on November 7th.
The Plaintiffs have 20 days to appeal the decision from Judge Naftz in the state case.
