Fired Professor Plans to Sue KSU
Saying there’s “too much water under the bridge to return” to Kentucky State University, fired agriculture professor Harold Benson plans to sue his former employer, his attorney says. Brenda Allen told The State Journal Tuesday that her client was unable to reach a settlement with KSU, and she’s preparing to file suit on his behalf. Allen says she is awaiting documents she requested from KSU under the Kentucky Open Records Act, and will likely file the suit in early September. She argues that her client was tenured faculty and couldn’t legally be terminated.
