UND NICKNAME: Plaintiffs in lawsuit file response

Author:

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit involving UND’s Fighting Sioux nickname have filed a reply to a brief the State Board of Higher Education earlier filed with the state Supreme Court. The key arguments continue to be, from the state’s side, that the plaintiffs, nickname supporters from the Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation, have no standing to sue and that the state has the right to retire the nickname whenever it chooses.
