The nonprofit Razorback Foundation was dismissed yesterday from a discrimination lawsuit filed by former Arkansas basketball coach Nolan Richardson. In Little Rock, U.S. District Judge William R. Wilson said there was insufficient evidence that the foundation and the university were Richardson's joint employer. The foundation is the fund-raising arm of the athletic department.
Richardson was fired in 2002. He sued the school and the foundation, saying he was dismissed because he is black and outspoken.
