Judge: UE Owes No More Money to McCarty

Steve Burger

The federal judge ruled in favor of UE and closed the case

A judge has ruled in favor of the University of Evansville in a lawsuit filed by former men’s basketball coach Walter McCarty. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

Federal Judge James Sweeny ruled that UE owes no further compensation to McCarty.

The coach claimed the university owed him at least $75,000, saying UE did not fulfill its contract obligations after firing him less than two years on the job.

But Judge Sweeny ruled that McCarty “shall take nothing by way of his complaint” against UE, and the judge closed the case.

In a statement, University spokesman Noah Alatsa says the contract was clear that McCarty was not entitled to any additional financial compensation. He says UE is “very pleased” by the judge’s ruling.

The university fired McCarty in 2020 due to allegations of sexual misconduct and Title IX violations.
