College of DuPage Settles Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

Two former College of DuPage administrators have settled their wrongful termination lawsuits against the school, ending a protracted legal battle that began after they were wrongfully terminated in retaliation.

Thomas Glaser and Lynn Sapyta sued the college, former COD board Chairwoman Kathy Hamilton and former interim President Joseph Collins after they were fired in September 2015 for opposing Hamilton’s political agenda.

According to Chicago Tribune, terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but college officials said neither the school nor its insurance carrier would pay any money as part of the deal with former Treasurer Thomas Glaser and former Controller Lynn Sapyta.

“The College is pleased that this litigation has ended,” the school said in a statement released after the vote. “The result is clearly in the best interests of the College.”
