(POCATELLO, ID) – Idaho State University has filed a lawsuit against a former professor who has spent years fighting the school in both state and federal courts. The university is seeking $75,000 in sanctions and legal fees from Habib Sadid, a former engineering faculty member who was fired amid heated disagreements with administrators. Sadid sued ISU for defamation, which was settled earlier this month. Sadid is asking U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill to reopen the case in an effort to clear his name. The school contends that Sadid is simply trying to increase litigation expenses.
