College Board nixes JSU settlement agreement

A five-year legal battle that has racked up more than $200,000 in legal fees and a $382,000 judgment against Jackson State University will continue after the state College Board voted last week against approving a settlement agreement between the school and its former women’s basketball coach.

In July, Denise Taylor Travis and JSU agreed in a settlement conference before U.S. Magistrate Judge Linda Anderson to end the case, but it was contingent on College Board approval.
