IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa is planning to lay off a former top athletic administrator who is suing the school for gender discrimination and retaliation, the school confirmed Wednesday.Iowa has informed former senior associate athletic director Jane Meyer that her position as a project manager will be eliminated Sept. 9, saying it is no longer necessary.Meyers attorney, Jill Zwagerman, went to court Wednesday seeking an injunction to block the termination from taking effect. Zwagerman argued that the layoff was further retaliation for Meyers complaints about unequal pay and treatment of women and lesbians in the athletics department and went back on previous promises that shed remain employed.The university said it would resist the injunction and denied discrimination and retaliation.The dispute is the latest in a messy personnel situation that has contributed to two lawsuits and an ongoing federal civil rights investigation of Iowas athletics department.It dates to August 2014, when athletic director Gary Barta abruptly fired longtime successful womens field hockey coach Tracey Griesbaum shortly before the season began. Meyer is Griesbaums longtime partner. Griesbaum has denied the universitys allegations that she bullied players and has sued the school, alleging she faced bias as a gay female coach.After Griesbaum gave notice that she planned to sue, the university reassigned Meyer to a job outside of the athletics department, where she had been the senior womans administrator since 2001. Barta said that Meyer could not work in the department while her partner pursued legal action and that Meyers leave would continue until Griesbaums case was resolved.The reassignment came one day after Meyer sent Barta a letter alleging that she was being targeted and discriminated against because she is a gay woman. Meyer noted that a newly-hired male administrator, deputy athletic director Gene Taylor, was given a much higher salary even though he performed many of the duties Meyer did previously.The complaint, released for the first time in court documents Wednesday, also recounted several instances when Meyer said she complained about the treatment of women.Many of these issues have been ignored, in my view, because they are important to women or threaten the male dominated culture in the athletics department, she wrote.The university allowed Meyer to keep her $173,000 annual salary after her move to a job overseeing university construction projects. She was later transferred to a position helping coordinate the complex moves of art and music programs into new buildings that have been built to replace those destroyed in a 2008 flood. She received positive evaluations in those roles, according to the evaluations submitted as court evidence.With the moves wrapping up at the beginning of the fall semester, the university gave Meyer the three-month notice required under university policy of her pending job elimination, spokeswoman Jeneane Beck said. The notice said that Meyer was eligible to apply for other positions.But Zwagerman said that Meyer had been assured her reassignment was temporary and that she would remain employed by the university. Now its clear, she said, that the school never had any intention of returning her to athletics.They merely wanted to create a time gap between Ms. Meyers whistleblowing and her termination in order to avoid any further retaliation allegations, Zwagerman wrote.Iowa could transfer Meyer to another job or return her to athletics by removing her from any involvement in Griesbaums case, she wrote.A judge is expected to rule on the injunction request in coming weeks.

Alex Stewart, a heavyweight contender who fought Mike Tyson and nearly beat George Foreman, has died. He was 52.Stewart died last week after being rushed to a hospital in Mount Vernon, N.Y., said Mike Gilberg, a close friend of the former fighter. He had a blood clot in his lung, Gilberg said.One day he wasnt feeling good, the next this happened, Gilberg said.Stewart fought in a golden time for heavyweight boxing, and he fought almost all the big names of his time. A perennial contender, he was never able to win the big fights of his career but had a reputation as a smart and tough fighter.Stewart lost twice to Evander Holyfield, and was knocked out in the first round of his December 1990 fight with Tyson. But it was his April 1992 fight with Foreman in Las Vegas that was the highlight of his career.Foreman was in the middle of a comeback that he would cap two years later by knocking out Michael Moorer to become the oldest man to win the heavyweight championship at the age of 45 when he met Stewart in a scheduled 10-round bout.Foreman knocked Stewart down twice in the second round and was battering him in the third, when Foreman motioned to referee Richard Steele to stop the fight. But Steele let it continue, and Stewart began pummeling Foreman around tthe ring.ddddddddddddI thought I had him in the third round but the referee let it go on, Foreman said. I didnt want to hurt the kid and now the kid hurt me.Stewart would lose a controversial majority decision, but it was Foreman who looked like loser after the fight with his face hidden behind large sunglasses.Was that a fight or was that a fight? Stewart asked reporters afterward.Stewart lost his second fight to Holyfield the next year, then spent the remainder of his career mostly as an opponent for younger fighters to measure themselves against. He retired with a record of 43-10 with 40 knockouts after losing his last fight in 1999 to Jorge Luis Gonzalez by second round knockout.Stewart was born in London and raised in Jamaica and fought for Jamaica in the 1984 Olympics before turning pro.Gilberg said after retiring from boxing Stewart was a driver for a liquor distributor in the New York City area, and later worked in a factory making boxes for the same company.Gilberg said the fighter is survived by his wife, Angella, and a daughter, Ajay-Tenille. Services will be held Nov. 29 at the Pelham Funeral Home in Pelham, N.Y.
