IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A University of Iowa spokesman says a judge has delayed a criminal case against two administrators brought by a fired professor in his native country of Jordan.
University spokesman Tom Moore said Monday that a judge postponed the case against former medical school dean Paul Rothman and associate medical dean Lois Geist until April 21. Moore says the judge is also requiring Rothman and Geist to be informed through diplomatic channels.
Rothman and Geist have been charged with making a threat based on allegations from Malik Juweid, a radiology professor fired in August. The university says the allegations are false and part of a harassment campaign by Juweid. Moore says Geist didn't make a threatening call to Juweid as he claims.
The university's retained a lawyer to fight the charges.
