KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A judge denied one of Tennessee's motions for protective order and granted another in former Lady Vols media director Debby Jennings' lawsuit against the university and athletic director Dave Hart.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Guyton denied a motion that would have forbidden discovery of information related to former Lady Vols basketball coach Pat Summitt's early onset Alzheimer's disease and the circumstances surrounding her departure in April 2012. Summitt stepped down after a 38-year tenure at Tennessee that included eight national championships.
Jennings is suing Tennessee, alleging age and sex discrimination led to her forced retirement after 35 years at the school.
