Southern, LaFleur settle lawsuit

BATON ROUGE - The Southern University Board of Supervisors will pay former Athletic Director Greg LaFleur about $150,000 to settle his breach of contract lawsuit.

Southern officials say that the settlement represents roughly half of the money the school would have paid LaFleur if he'd been allowed to fulfill the full terms of his contract.

LaFleur had argued the university was too quick to fire him after his 2011 arrest in Houston for soliciting sex from an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute. It took a Houston jury 34 minutes to find LaFleur not guilty of the charge during a 2012 trial.

The case was set for trial on Jan. 22.
