Judge throws out lawsuit involving SU chancellor

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A state judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by Southern University student Author Joiner who sued the school for refusing to renew its contract with Chancellor James Llorens.

District Judge Mike Caldwell dismissed the suit Monday after hearing arguments from Joiner and Southern Board of Supervisors attorney Winston Decuir Jr.

The Advocate reports Caldwell ruled that Joiner, who's also a Baton Rouge lawyer, is "little more than an interested bystander" and had no right to sue the school's supervisory board.

After the hearing, Joiner said he'll likely asked the state 1st Circuit Court of Appeal to review Caldwell's decision.

Lloren's three-year contract is set to expire June 30.
