Former SU athletic director files suit
Former Southern University Athletic Director Greg LaFleur, who was fired three days after his April 3 arrest on a misdemeanor prostitution count in Houston, is suing the school for breach of contract.
LaFleur contends in a lawsuit that Southern fired him “before giving him written notice and an opportunity to refute the alleged cause’’ for his termination.
LaFleur is seeking damages, including his base salary for the remaining term of his contract, which he says was to expire June 30, 2013.
The suit was filed Thursday in Baton Rouge state court.
