Court Case Doesn’t Make the Grade

Megan Thode, 27, went to trial in February in Easton, Pa., suing Lehigh University, accusing a professor of illegally discriminating against her with a C-plus grade in a 2009 class in LU’s graduate counseling program, in which a B was the minimum required to continue. Thode demanded $1.3 million for future career damage (but not a tuition refund — she’d matriculated for free because her father’s a Lehigh professor). Four days after the trial began, the judge ruled against her.
