Still reeling from the fallout of the Larry Nassar Sexual Abuse Scandal, Michigan State University is in hot water again this week after The Chronicle of Higher Education revealed previously unpublished emails in which Interim President John Engler criticizes lawyers of the assault survivors. The email exchange between Engler and a university official also implied a belief that survivor Rachael Denhollander would receive a kickback from her lawyer. WKAR's Karel Vega spoke with Chronicle of Higher Education reporter Jack Stripling, who wrote the article revealing the contents of the emails.

The court took up two cases, one out of Wisconsin and one out of Maryland, with lines drawn by both parties.

It declared that the plaintiffs in Wisconsin don't have standing to sue, because they didn't try to prove that their vote had been diluted in their own district.
