Court Rules IA Scholar Can Get New Trial

 DES MOINES, IA (AP) -- An appeals court has ruled a conservative scholar who sued a University of Iowa law school dean over alleged political discrimination can get a new trial.
   The Des Moines Register reports the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals said Tuesday that Teresa Wagner can get a new trial on her claim that she was denied promotions at the school because of her political views.
   Wagner sued the school's former dean in 2009. A federal jury in 2012 ruled that no political discrimination took place, but they could not decide whether Wagner's equal protection rights were violated.
   A magistrate judge declared a mistrial on the equal protection charge, and a district judge later dismissed it. That same judge denied an appeal from Wagner for a new trial.
