US District Court Judge James Browning has issued a ruling in the case of Jonathan B. Gerald v. UNM, et al., dismissing all claims against UNM Vice-President for Athletics Paul Krebs and UNM Men's Football Coach Mike Locksley, and all claims against the University itself.

UNM President David J. Schmidly said, "This is welcome news.  I have great faith in our head football coach Mike Locksley, and his commitment to building our football program.  Although we recognize that former coach Gerald has the right to re-file a portion of his claim, I hope this is the end of the court proceeding."
