NORFOLK, Va. — A lawsuit alleging Old Dominion University discriminated against a former professor has been dismissed.

Patricia Hentosh’s lawsuit alleged that she was denied tenure because she is white. The lawsuit said that the university retaliated against Hentosh for complaining about an Asian American colleague.

U.S. District Senior Judge Robert Doumar said in his ruling that Hentosh was denied tenure because she failed to meet ODU’s standards. Doumar also said that Hentosh failed to produce sufficient evidence of retaliation.

Doumar granted the university’s motion for summary judgment on Friday.

A similar lawsuit is pending before another federal judge.

Hentosh’s attorney, Raymond Hogge, tells The Roanoke Times that the other lawsuit involves broader issues concerning how ODU treats white employees relative to other employees.
