Judge Denies Preliminary Injunction to Fired Law Prof


Stephanie Brown, a former professor at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law who sued the school after she was refused tenure and subsequently fired, was denied a preliminary injunction to hold off her termination.

Although U.S. District Judge Richard Leon didn’t rule on the merit of Brown’s lawsuit, he did find that Brown shouldn’t have waited 11 months after she was denied tenure to argue her professional reputation or future career options would be immediately and irreparably harmed without a court order, the Blog of Legal Times reported.

Brown applied for tenure in 2009, after 25 years as an administrator and law professor. Her application was denied in 2011 and she was told in May 2012 that she’d be fired at the end of the school year, the same month she filed suit, according to the report.
