A federal judge has ruled that Oregon's state colleges and universities did not engage in a pattern of widespread sex discrimination against women faculty members. U.S. District Judge Helen Frye rejected all but three of the 58 discrimination claims by 22 named plaintiffs in a class-action suit brought against the Oregon Board of Higher Education. The suit sought $33.1 million in back pay, plus legal costs, for 2,200 faculty women at the eight state schools.
