A North Carolina student has sued the university he once attended, saying he was treated unfairly when he got into a fight with the son of a major donor
BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina student has sued the university he once attended, saying he was treated unfairly when he got into a fight with the son of a major donor.
The Times-News of Burlington reports Samuel Shaw says in the lawuit filed in Alamance County Superior Court that the donor’s son, Spencer Schar, got a lighter suspension than he did. Schar is the son of Dwight and Martha Schar, who donated $12 million to the university in 2014.
The lawsuit says police determined Shaw acted in self-defense.
The university said it disputes the allegations and will defend itself in court.
