A graduate of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. has sued the school for $1.3 million because she is unhappy that she got a C+ in a class in 2009.
Megan Thode, 27, says the grade ruined her dream of becoming a licensed professional counselor, reports The Morning Call, an Allentown-based newspaper. Her civil suit alleges breach of contract and sexual discrimination. It contends that the grade was part of a broader attempt to force her to abandon the graduate degree she was pursuing.
Hamburg pointed out that Thode is the daughter of Lehigh finance professor Stephen Thode. One of the perks of that relationship was that she was able to enroll in the Lehigh graduate program tuition-free. The school provided her with a job as well. She also got to attend York College of Pennsylvania at no charge as an undergraduate thanks to her Lehigh connections, says The Call.
Thode was on the witness stand Monday. Another Lehigh attorney, Michael Sacks, grilled her about her free ride.
“Even after you sued Lehigh, you were getting free tuition and working for Lehigh?” Sacks queried.
“Yes,” Thode answered.
Lehigh’s lawyers allege that Thode’s behavior in class was not acceptable for someone seeking a master’s degree in counseling. On at least one occasion, they said, she used profanity in class. Another time, she broke down crying.
Before filing her lawsuit, Thode filed complaints with the university over the C+ grade, showing up at meetings with her father, the finance professor. She sought a written apology from Carr, the course instructor, and a “plan for compensating me financially,” notes The Morning Call.
Even the SEAL who "pulled the trigger on UBL" is being a baby because he can't keep his active duty benefits for only doing 16 years.
Not sure if serious? That guy deserves a lot more than full benefits.
That could of been any SEAL pulling that trigger. They're trained to do that, that was their mission or capture (nothing above or beyond). Any benefit he recieves should be same for the others. Apart from the recognition at best if that what he wants. So any extra benefit from that would be pussy being thrown at him or free drinks or any civilian attributed benefit.
