Jurors say they saw bias in law school case
DAVENPORT (AP) — Members of a federal jury say they believed the University of Iowa law school denied a promotion to a conservative because of her politics, but did not rule in the woman’s favor because they were split on whether the former dean could be held responsible.
Jurors said in interviews after last month’s trial that they agreed the law school unfairly passed over Teresa Wagner for jobs on the faculty. But they said they wanted to hold the school, not former dean Carolyn Jones, responsible for the discrimination and thus reached an unusual mixed verdict in the case, the Des Moines Register reported Wednesday.
“I will say that everyone in that jury room believed that she had been discriminated against,” said Davenport resident Carol Tracy, the jury forewoman.
