LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit accusing the University of Arkansas of mishandling an investigation over e-mails critical of former quarterback Mitch Mustain.
Justices also upheld a contempt order issued against the attorney who filed the suit for engaging in prohibited discovery over the e-mails.
Justices dismissed the appeal filed by John David Terry. His attorney argued before the court last week that a circuit judge should not have dismissed the lawsuit, accusing UA of failing to properly investigate e-mails denouncing the quarterback, who later transferred to Southern Cal.
Justices noted that the appeal was moot because John White, one of the defendants targeted in the suit, has already stepped down as UA chancellor.
An attorney for UA argued last week that the lawsuit was pointless because the three main players in the dispute have all since left the school. White retired, Mustain transferred and coach Houston Nutt left to coach at Ole Miss.
roperly investigate the e-mail. Terry's lawsuit alleged that White should not have had Nutt investigate the critical e-mail because it was sent to Mustain by Razorbacks booster Teresa Prewett, a friend of Nutt's family.
