Chicago school to pay balance on $4.3M to whistleblower

Chicago State University appears set to give the remainder of a $4.3 million payment to a former administrator who filed a whistleblower lawsuit against school in 2010.

The Chicago Sun-Times ( ) reports there had been years of wrangling with James Crowley. But it cites his lawyers as saying the balance will be paid off within days.

Crowley alleged he was wrongly dismissed, including after he shed light on questionable contracts.

Jurors awarded Crowley back pay and $2 million in punitive damages in 2014, as well as attorney fees. But the amount increased because of interest and other fees stemming from appeals by Chicago State University.
