Former Southern University System President Ralph Slaughter has been sanctioned and ordered to pay $8,000 in fines and attorney fees.

Southern Board of Supervisors lawyer Lewis Unglesby filed a motion for sanctions against Slaughter.

He claimed Slaughter had filed frivolous motions to disqualify both Kelley and fellow state District Judge Janice Clark from deciding his lawsuit.

Slaughter lost his job after his contract ran out in June.

He is suing in both state district and federal courts for retaliation and wrongful termination by the Southern Board.

After Monday's, Slaughter vowed to appeal and keep fighting.
