Dorrance harassment case slated for jury trial in April

UNC women's soccer coach Anson Dorrance will stand trial beginning April 7 in a sexual harassment case that has bounced around the justice system since 1998.
The trial will be held at U.S. District Court after being sent back by the Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court refused a request to hear the case.
The suit - filed by former player Melissa Jennings - alleges harassment and invasion of privacy between 1996 to 1998.
The suit names Dorrance, three assistant coaches, a trainer, several University officials, including Director of Athletics Dick Baddour, the deceased Chancellor Michael Hooker and the University itself.
The University will be defended by the office of N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper.
