UC Nike loses round in big sex discrimination case

The university got the bad news, again, from the Ninth Circuit last week. The suits in Eugene are actually talking about the possibility of appealing to the Supreme Court. The whole thing must be costing quite the pretty penny. The case, brought by a former Ph.D. candidate in the education department, would go to trial next, unless the Supremes dismiss it.

Wouldn't you say it would (or will) cost a lot more if they lose?

At any rate, that a lot of money must be spent defending legal cases says nothing in itself on their merits.

Yes. The cost is a reflection of the screwy system, it says nothing about the merits of individual cases.
