K-STATE OFFICIALS COMMENT ON RULING AND NEXT STEPS
MANHATTAN -- In the case of Kansas State University, et al. v. Ron Prince, et al., K-State officials learned today that the Court has determined that there are issues of fact a jury will have to decide at trial.
Pete Paukstelis, associate general counsel, said, "The decision by the judge to deny the summary judgment motions of both sides in this case was not unexpected. Basically, the Court determined that there are issues of fact that a jury would have to decide. We are continuing to work aggressively to protect the position of the university and K-State Athletics. And we continue to believe we have strong facts and legal arguments to present at trial in Riley County. We look forward to presenting them."
