For North Idaho College, the verdict is about three weeks away.
Regional accreditors have made their decision about the fate of the embattled Coeur d’Alene-based community college, President Nick Swayne said Wednesday. But the announcement won’t come before July 21.
Attorneys representing North Idaho College President Nick Swayne have asked the court to grant him reinstatement without going to trial.
Last Friday, Swayne’s legal counsel filed a motion for summary judgement in his lawsuit, which alleges that three NIC trustees violated the terms of his employment agreement when they placed him on administrative leave for no disciplinary reason in December 2022.
A Kootenai County judge reaffirmed her order requiring North Idaho College to reinstate Nick Swayne as the college’s active president.
Judge Cynthia Meyer issued a written decision Wednesday afternoon denying NIC’s request that she overturn her March decision, which forced the college to restore Swayne to his job while his lawsuit seeking permanent reinstatement proceeds.
