In my last post on this case I inadvertently linked to an old New York Times story and therefore provided readers with some dated information. The most recent information about the case, which we previously blogged about, is that the planned January 2009 trial will be split into two phases according to a Times of Trenton report. The first phase will determine whether the university is liable for the plaintiff's claims and, if so, the second phase will determine the appropriate remedy, whether monetary damages and/or equitable relief. The article also reports that settlement talks are ongoing, but it is far from clear that the parties will reach any type of agreement before the trial start date of January 20th. For more information about the case, see Princeton University's detailed website about the case, including the current status and copies of the court's various rulings to date.
