Former South Carolina State University President Andrew Hugine’s lawsuit has been settled after two years. Hugine was dismissed from South Carolina State more than two years ago. The former president sued the school and trustees after his dismissal.
Hugine received $60,000 as part of the settlement, but school officials did not confirm that amount. According to a recent report, Hugine sought after $2 million in the actual and punitive damages from the individual defendants and up to $1 million from South Carolina State University. However, he dropped the suits against the individuals in July of last year. Hugine worked for the school for 33 years, and president since 2003. He is now president of Alabama A&M University.
