That’s Gotta Hurt.


Southern University’s former system president lost his wrongful termination lawsuit against the board of supervisors Thursday.

… [Ralph] Slaughter filed the lawsuit after the Board of Supervisors voted not to renew his contract earlier this year.

District Judge Tim Kelly did not mince words when he issued his ruling, saying after his dismissal, Slaughter emptied his office and stadium suite of just about everything that was not nailed down.

Judge Kelly also said Slaughter created chaos when he took those things, therefore Southern’s failure to pay his unused vacation and sick leave was justified. Kelly also ruled that Slaughter is not entitled to penalties or attorney fees.

… [The judge] called testimony from … Slaughter the “least credible” he has ever heard.
