Danley Awarded $140,000 in Lawsuit

An Alabama judge has awarded Stacy Danley, a former athletics director at Alabama State University, more than $140,000 in his wrongful termination lawsuit against the university, the Montgomery Advertiser has reported.

Over the weekend, retired Circuit Court Judge James Reid, who was assigned the case after several Montgomery County Circuit Court judges recused themselves, determined Danley “was not properly terminated” by ASU and awarded him $140,216.87.

Reid also dismissed a counter-claim ASU brought against its former AD for unapproved travel expenses, calling the claim “conflicting and confusing.” The decision in favor of Danley, comes six months after the ASU Board of Trustees rejected a settlement offer that would have seen Mr. Danley return to his position for the remainder of his contract. Mr. Danley was fired in 2012. A lawyer for the university did not respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
