Women's athletes' lawsuit against Missouri State University settled

A Title IX lawsuit brought by four Missouri State University tennis players after their sport was one of five dropped by the university has apparently been settled.
A motion to dismiss the case with prejudice was filed today in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri by lawyers for Paty Manzur, Maja Stanojevic, Eleonora Kuruc, and Monika Musilova.
No details of the settlement were provided.
The class action suit was filed in April by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the athletes. The case had been set to go to trial in February 2007.
