Follow-up Statement on Leach Ruling from Texas Tech Attorney Dicky Grigg

Second statement on ruling in Mike Leach case.

Only Mike Leach would claim victory after losing on 10 of 11 issues.

The judge ruled in favor of Texas Tech on all claims except one. The judge’s action today means that only one of the 11 issues before him can potentially go to court. We continue to maintain that this case has no merit legally or factually. The fact is Mike Leach mistreated an injured student athlete. He was terminated for this mistreatment and his insubordination and his repeated refusal to do anything to address issues raised by the student’s parents.

Texas Tech will appeal the judge’s ruling and we expect the Appeals Court will find in Texas Tech’s favor and dismiss the remaining claim.
