Knight, Indiana will have day in court
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 8 to determine whether Bob Knight's wrongful dismissal lawsuit against Indiana University should proceed to trial.
A judge set the hearing following the university's request to dismiss the lawsuit by its former basketball coach.
Knight was fired in 2000 by Myles Brand, then the school president, for what the university called a "pattern of unacceptable behavior."
Knight, who was at Indiana for 29 years and is now the coach at Texas Tech, sued for breach of contract in November.
The lawsuit is one of four the university faces related to Knight's employment and subsequent dismissal.
