Reinstate? You have to be kidding me...
The jury's verdict awarded Crowe $90,000 in back pay, $160,000 for past emotional distress and $37,000 for future distress from her improper firing. But that might not be the only relief sought in the case, according to Tom Newkirk, Crowe's lawyer.
Newkirk said the verdict clears the way for Polk County Judge Scott Rosenberg to reinstate Crowe as softball coach or take other steps to provide equitable relief under Title IX. Those steps could include Rosenberg ordering a complete audit of Iowa State's athletic compliance with Title IX and demanding improvements to the school's softball facilities.
Newkirk said that a hearing on what kind of relief should be provided is likely to be held next month after motions are filed by both sides.
