NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Old Dominion University is being sued by a professor who claims she was denied tenure because she is white.


Patricia Hentosh also claims she was told to leave the university at the end of 2012-2013 academic year.

Hentosh filed her lawsuit in April in federal court in Norfolk. The lawsuit seeks an injunction to require the university to either give her tenure or reopen the tenure evaluation process and keep her on the payroll for another three years.


The lawsuit also seeks unspecified monetary damages.


Hentosh is a professor in the School of Medical Laboratory and Radiation Sciences. She claims the university retaliated against her for complaining about an Asian American colleague.


University officials would not comment on the lawsuit.
