Sep 29, 2008

On September 29, 2008, firm attorney Amy E. Clendennan received an order dismissing, with prejudice, a lawsuit against Tueth Keeney client Saint Louis University. The suit involved various claims by a former Saint Louis University student, arising out of the change of leadership of the University News newspaper and the reduction of a scholarship that she claimed was awarded to her. The student was a former journalism major and editor in chief of the University News, who transferred after filing suit against SLU. In an order issued by Judge Dowd in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, the lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice.
