Federal court closes case of former journalism dean
After three years of back and forth talk about sexual harassment, due process and court motions, the case is finally closed. Well, almost.
John Soloski, a journalism professor and former dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, has reached an agreement with University President Michael Adams and the University to settle a lawsuit that started in 2006 after he was accused of harassing a co-worker.
The U.S. District Court in Atlanta said Nov. 5 that the case was “dismissed with prejudice,” meaning the case is closed unless either party reopens it in 60 days, according to court documents.
