Court Tosses former UNC Players’ “Negligent Education” Suit Filed Against UNC

A North Carolina state judge tossed a suit filed by two former UNC athletes, former basketball player Leah Metcalf and former football player James Arnold, both of whom claimed that the they had been “funneled” into sham courses in the unversity’s notorious Afro-Am studies department, and therefore did not receive the education promised them when they enrolled. The judge concluded that the unversity could not be sued on these grounds, because of sovereign immunity and, in addition, that the pertinent statute of limitations had passed.
