Former Lady Vols media director Debby Jennings filed suit against the University of Tennessee and athletic director Dave Hart alleging she was forced to retire based on her age and sex. Jennings claims that Hart set out to create a “good ol’ boys” department with a desire to rid the department of senior women. Jennings, further, claims that Hart and other officials “fostered a culture of intimidation and hostility,” which ultimately laid to 12 females being laid off compared to only 3 males. Interestingly, the lawsuit also claims that Pat Summit was forced to retire. A copy of the petition can be found here.
