EASTON, Pa. - A woman who unsuccessfully sued a Pennsylvania university over the C-plus grade she got in one of her graduate classes asked a judge Tuesday to award her a new trial.
An attorney for former Lehigh University graduate student Megan Thode argued her case in Northampton County Court. Thode wants the grade raised to a B and seeks $1.3 million in damages.
Judge Emil Giordano ruled against Thode this year. Her attorney, Richard Orloski, asked the judge to reverse his ruling or grant his client a new trial.
