Chicago State Settles With Glenn Meeks
At the end of 2016, the university apparently decided to settle the Glenn Meeks lawsuit. At this point, details of the settlement are not available, but it's certainly not a victory for the administration of Wayne Watson. Since Chicago State may be responsible for paying the damages in the Crowley case, it seems likely that the university wanted to make sure that insurance would cover the costs associated with the Meeks matter. Probably more than $500,000 spent to defend Watson for behavior that should be indefensible. Even though insurance apparently covers the bulk of the costs associated with this lawsuit, the university is still responsible for a deductible amount, somewhere around $150,000 I believe. More money down the drain.
