A2: Lawsuit

The Detroit News reports that a Washtenaw County jury has awarded almost $418,000 to Kay Ernsting, a former Ave Maria College administrator who sued the Ann Arbor-based school for firing her in retaliation for cooperating with federal investigators. From the report: “Ernsting filed her whistleblower lawsuit seven years ago after the conservative Catholic college created by Domino’s Pizza founder Tom Monaghan eliminated Ernsting’s position as director of financial aid, shortly after the U.S. Department of Education fined and ordered the college to make repayments of almost $250,000 for improperly issued financial aid. The trial was long-delayed by the college’s multiple appeals.” [Source]
