Jane Meyer, a former University of Iowa associate athletics director who worked for the department from 2001 to 2014, is suing her former employer for gender and sexual orientation discrimination, as well as claims of retaliation after she complained when her longtime partner, Tracey Griesbaum, was fired in August 2014 as the UI’s head field hockey coach.

A jury of five women and five men are seated for the trial that could last up to three weeks.
