Sioux nickname decision delayed

Author:

The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has been told by a district judge that it may not retire the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux nickname until a hearing on Dec. 9. The temporary restraining order, dated Monday, came from Judge Michael G. Sturdevant of Bottineau as part of a lawsuit against the board brought by the Committee for Understanding and Respect, a group of Spirit Lake nation nickname supporters.
