Ky. High Court to Take Up Sex Harassment Case
By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT, KY - A former University of Louisville assistant track coach will get a chance to argue that she deserves a $300,000 judgment and that the school fired her because she filed a sexual harassment complaint.
The Kentucky Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear the case of Mary Banker. The Kentucky Court of Appeals in February 2013 threw out the judgment, saying Banker couldn't prove she was dismissed because she filed the complaint.
Banker sued the University of Louisville Athletic Association in 2008. Banker worked on track coach Ron Mann's staff from September 2007 through June 2008. Banker was informed her contract would not be renewed around the same time she filed a sexual harassment complaint in April 2008.
The court did not immediately set a hearing date.
