Judge recommends dismissing suit against former MSU coach

DETROIT (AP) A federal judge has recommended that a former Michigan State football staff member's claims against former Spartans football coach Mark Dantonio, former athletic director Mark Hollis and former school President Lou Anna Simon should be dismissed.

Curtis Blackwell filed a lawsuit in November 2018 claiming his employment agreement was violated when he was disciplined while the school addressed sexual assault allegations against three players in 2017. Dantonio, Hollis and Simon were named as defendants in the suit. Two MSU police detectives were also named as defendants.

In a filing Friday, Magistrate Judge Sally J. Berens said the case against Dantonio, Hollis and Simon "appears to have been prosecuted for an improper purpose and should be dismissed." Berens did not recommend dismissing the claims against the detectives.
