Eleven former members of the now-defunct UND women’s hockey program filed a class action discrimination lawsuit against the North Dakota University System in U.S. District Court on Tuesday. Their goal is to reinstate the program that was cut 15 months ago. “That’s our No. 1, No. 2 … all the way to No. 10 goal,” said Dan Siegel, the attorney for the players. “We want the university to start playing women’s ice hockey again.” Siegel said the players aren’t seeking financial damages outside of covering court costs. Siegel recently represented former University of Minnesota Duluth women’s hockey coach Shannon Miller in her successful discrimination lawsuit against the school. Miller was awarded $3.74 million by a jury in March after the school decided not to renew her contract. – Brad Elliott Schlossman, Grandforks Herald. Read More.
