CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story said if the Board of Trustees rules against Paul Frampton in his appeal to receive his University salary, Frampton wouldn’t pursue further legal action. He will pursue legal action if that is the ruling. The article has been changed to reflect this.
As UNC physics professor Paul Frampton continues to serve time on house arrest in Argentina, a lawsuit he had previously filed against the University was dismissed Monday by an N.C. judge.
Frampton filed the lawsuit in North Carolina in protest of UNC’s decision to suspend his pay after he was arrested last January at a Buenos Aires airport with two kilograms of cocaine in his suitcase.
Williams said the dismissal of the lawsuit by Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood will not derail Frampton’s overall case against the University.
