A state judge has ruled that the University of Minnesota discriminated against Katie Brenny, a former associate golf coach, because she is a lesbian, The Star Tribune reported. Brenny quit her job at Minnesota after most of her duties were reassigned, and the judge agreed with her contention that those reassignments came after some at the university learned her sexual orientation. The judge awarded her just under $360,000. A spokesman for the university, which has denied wrongdoing, said that it was reviewing the decision but was disappointed by the judge's ruling.
