Persaud v. University of Maryland University College

DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more

In Brief

A university professor successfully demonstrated a whistleblower claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 where his contract was shortened after he opposed an administration plan.

Summary of Filed Complaint

TELG Client Dr. Motee Persaud alleged that he was the subject of a number of inappropriate remarks about race and national origin. Persaud expressed dismay about these remarks, and also expressed opposition to certain plans by the University that Persaud felt were inefficient. Thereafter, the term of Persaud’s employment contract was reduced.

What Happened in Court

A federal judge in Maryland upheld the existence of a claim where a university professor spoke up to ensure that the university’s curricula in their programs were up to date, state of the art, and high quality, and to ensure that the faculty teaching in their programs were effective.
