Some have concerns about possible bias in UND nickname case

Email

FARGO -- Leigh Jeanotte "would hope" that North Dakota's Supreme Court won't be biased in any way about the Fighting Sioux nickname because four of its five members are University of North Dakota law school graduates.

"But you always wonder about that affiliation with UND and the athletics," said Jeanotte, director of American Indian Student Services at UND and an outspoken nickname opponent. "It just could taint something, I think, in a horrible way."
