Alvin de Levie:
- “I have developed a proven record of tenaciously and successfully representing my clients against large corporations and institutions, including Penn State” This claim appears to be referencing de Levie’s representation of fired Penn State Fencing Coach Emmanuil Kadainov . In that suit, de Levie filed motions on seven different causes – seeking: Reinstatement of Kadainov to his coaching position and Compensatory and Punitive Damages. Upon Penn State’s request, the Judge dismissed all of the actions de Levie filed against PSU Athletic Director Dave Joyner and against PSU Integrity Officer Julie DelGiorno…. along with all actions against Penn State – aside from a “Breach of Contract” and “Due Process” action. http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/federal-court-allows-former-fencing-coachs-lawsuit-against-penn-state-to-continue,1462339/ The case then settled – confidentially and out of Court – with Kadainov NOT being reinstated – nor being awarded compensatory or punitive damages by the Court.
- “I will call for an independent audit that will help us fulfill the true mission of Penn State as a Land Grant University”
- Do the Work
- Apply the Data
- Speak Up, and Stand Up for Fiscal Responsibility
