A lawsuit filed against coach Charlie Strong from his time at Louisville has been dismissed, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
A former Louisville player claimed that Strong and the university reneged on a pledge to continue his scholarship through graduate school even though he was injured by two teammates in a locker room fight.
According to the report, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Susan Schultz Gibson determined that Strong and the university were protected by sovereign immunity, which protects the state from legal liability except in some circumstances.
The player’s attorney told the paper his client would file an appeal.
Charlie Strong left Louisville to become the head coach at Texas in January 2014.
