College of Southern Idaho Asks for Dismissal of VP’s Lawsuit
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The College of Southern Idaho is asking the U.S. District Court to dismiss a lawsuit by a former vice president claiming discrimination based on her gender and national origin.
Edit Szanto filed the suit in July against the school's board of trustees, president and former interim president. She claims she was fired when she made claims about discrimination against her as a woman and an immigrant from Romania. The Times-News reports that CSI filed a response to the lawsuit asking for it to be dismissed with prejudice, so it cannot be filed again.
According to the complaint, Szanto was paid less than fellow male employees and was passed over for positions that she was qualified for. CSI officials deny all allegations made in the complaint.
