Will he win? Can you prove his case?

I would think as a lawyer himself he definitely feels he will win.

Does this get settled out of court?

When did he file a suit?  I can't find anything beyond the complaint.

Watching now

Claiming they have personal belongings, equipment and other things, and are refusing to return them.

I think he said something about camp money as well.

Title IX retaliation.

His complaints match the softball players complaints.

I see a lot of upset posters calling him trash...why?
These are serious complaints and need to be addressed. Apparently the school didn’t address them when they were brought up previously, and now they are being brought up again and they can’t dismiss them this time. I’ll be following this closely.

Like my mom and dad use to say, if you don't have something good to say about somebody, just STFU. Hope you got that, SECFAN91

Can anyone name a school that doesn’t have disparity between men’s and women’s sports. I would guesss many schools share trainers and therapists with other sports that have different seasons and many have poor training facilities for non revenue sports.

So because other schools do it that makes it OK?
Change has to start somewhere, this seems to be a good place to get it started.

What you say is true..............But,.............

There are publicly posted text-messages between the parties involved which spell-out alot............You can find 'em and read 'em if you so choose........Without reading those text-messages, you have no clue what all this disparity stuff is about..........There is a long, provable history of TitleIX complaints...........Notice I said "complaints"............The University administration cannot dispute this..........How they handled those "complaints" is what's under question............

The University administration did themselves a great disservice by handling all this the wrong way - and they're still handling it wrong............

Sounds like he wants his personal stuff and vindication to me.

Interesting point in the article posted in the OP.  The majority of the article is the pre-press conference statement from Lotief's attorney. 

There is a line in there about paying to rehire a football coach who had a history of domestic violence but not paying the salaries of three assistant softball coaches. 

I'd like to see more information about who those 3 assistants were that the statement was referring to and if they were employed by the softball program at the same time.  NCAA rules only allow for 3 paid coaches of any type - full time, part time or GA.  If they meant 2 assistant coaches and the DO then that would be legal but if they were trying to pay 3 assistant coaches plus Lotief's salary he could have an NCAA issue as well which would give the University the right to fire him without cause.

Yikes. Mike getting more than he bargained for I suspect. Sounds very bad when stated in succinct terms.

Based on UL's response, I think a quick settlement is out of the question.  Let the depositions begin.  

This is going to be expensive.  Curious if this is a contingency fee case.  If so, that's a big risk for the attorney.  If not, that's a hefty bill on the horizon.

Certainly got ugly quick. This is gonna be a long battle. I doubt either side would pursue so publicly unless they had plenty of evidence. Get ready everyone!

It didn't get ugly quick. The reasoning for his firing hasn't changed. He is just so crazy that he doesn't understand that what he did was nuts. "Mind" meetings. What the hell is that? Don't trust anyone, including your parents, are you kidding me? He is a whack job and in today's society, have evidence of sexual harassment on your program and that certainly trumps his ridiculous Title IX complaints. He's done.

He may "feel" he is going to win... 
but I think Lotief has about as much chance as a 15 year old trying to hit Monica Abbott.

I'll give him about a .050 shot (about 5%).

Guessing he was angling for a settlement - the women in the video sound as if that will not be an option ULL is considering.

That does all sound nuts. But that’s also coming from the representatives and legal council of the school he was fired from and is now suing. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes. I don’t know any real details and have no insight as to what the truth is here. As far as I’m concerned both sides could be lying some.

If they have documented evidence, as they claim in their video it is probably not going anywhere.
