Former administrator’s suit against UT dismissed

Posted: Updated:

A former University of Toledo administrator has lost her appeal over her 2008 firing for an opinion piece she wrote.

Crystal Dixon was UT's Vice President of Human Resources. She was fired after writing a column in the Toledo Free Press critical of gay rights.

She sued the university, along with its president and vice president of human resources and campus safety, claiming violation of her rights to free speech and equal protection.

On Monday, a three-judge panel upheld a lower court's ruling to dismiss her suit.
