A federal judge has ordered a former professor who sued the University of Nevada at Reno, Hussein S. Hussein, and his former lawyer to pay the state $1.2 million for costs associated with lawsuits filed after Hussein lost his job, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported. The judge's ruling said: “Dr. Hussein should be required to pay defendants fees because he transformed what could have and should have been a straightforward employment matter into a full-scale assault against nearly everyone who crossed his path at the university." Hussein couldn't be reached for comment.
