Clemson trustees ask for qualified immunity

Summary judgment hearings have been scheduled in the Troutman suit for June. Troutman, who was assistant to Clemson's president, alleges he lost his job, in part, after he spoke out about "excessive" salary increases given to some university administrators. Troutman alleges in his suit that increases in tuition and fees at Clemson weren't justified by cuts in state appropriations, and that trustees "hoarded" cash from tuition increases to build an unrestricted $80 million fund.
