Georgetown Law Settles Suit With Donor

May 23, 2014

A donor and Georgetown University Law School have dropped dueling lawsuits, Legal Times reported. The donor, Scott Ginsburg, sued last year, charging that the law school had broken a pledge to reward his multimillion-dollar gifts by naming a building after him. Georgetown in turn said that Ginsburg hadn't paid all that he pledged, and that he had agreed not to have a building named for him when he was found civilly liable for insider trading. The two sides are not disclosing terms of their apparent settlement. Both sides, however, talked about a hope for "future partnerships."
