OSHKOSH – A former UW-Oshkosh baseball coach is appealing the dismissal of his case against the university.
Thomas Lechnir has been fighting to regain his job. He contends the university improperly denied a renewal of his contract. The school has stood by its decision.
In March, a Winnebago County judge ruled UWO used the right procedure to dismiss Lechnir. On Friday, Lechnir filed notice he is appealing that decision.
Lechnir’s attorney, Jason Wied, has said he plans to file a federal lawsuit against UWO. However, all state court proceedings must be exhausted before that suit can be filed, hence the appeal.
