Frog Statue by Reed and Scharbauer Hall

TCU and a former economics professor reached a settlement last week in a lawsuit that alleged discrimination by the university.

Parties representing both sides came to an agreement after meeting with a mediator in March.

Dr. Silda Nikaj originally filed the suit last January, three years after she had left TCU.

She alleged the university discriminated against her based on race, gender and national origin.

U.S. District Judge Mark T. Pittman ordered the parties to file dismissal papers in the lawsuit by the end of the month. Details on the settlement have not yet been made available.
