CHARLESTON - A lawsuit filed against West Virginia State University after a former student claimed it failed to reimburse file for classes was dismissed in 2011.
The dismissal order was filed July 12, 2011. In the order, based upon a review of the allegations in David L. Lottig Jr.'s complaint and the date the complaint was filed, the court found that Lottig failed to file his complaint within the applicable statute of limitations period.
Lottig was a student at West Virginia State University and began attending classes in August 2000, according to a complaint filed March 22, 2011, in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Lottig claimed when his mother became ill, he made arrangements with his professors to make up his school work when he returned, but after his mother’s death and upon returning to school, he was told he had missed too much school and would not pass his classes.
Lottig was seeking judgment in the amount of $20,000 to reimburse him for tuition. He was representing himself.
WVSU was represented by Billie Jo Streyle of Bailey & Wyant PLLC.
The case was assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
