Retiring University of Louisville official with big settlement agrees not to criticize school

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 19, 2014 12:21 PM EDT

The University of Louisville is paying a large settlement to a retiring high-ranking official.

The Courier-Journal reports university counsel Angela Koshewa will get nearly $350,000 — nearly twice her final salary.

The newspaper reported earlier that three officials retiring last year got double what other retiring administrators were getting. The paper said their separation agreements included clauses barring them from criticizing the university or its leadership. Koshewa's agreement contains a similar provision.

In an email, University Vice President for Human Resources Sam Connally said the package wasn't offered to get Koshewa to sign a non-disparagement agreement.

Marcia McCormick, a St. Louis University law school professor, said such clauses are inappropriate because those people are in the best position to inform the public about how the university is being run.
