Highlight

Equitable estoppel may preclude the application of a statute of limitations by a party whose actions induce another party to not file a claim within a prescribed statutory period.
In balancing the constitutional authority of the Board of Higher Education to remove faculty and employees, the constitutional authority of the legislature and the constitutional limits of review by the judicial branch under separation of powers concepts, the proper standard of review of a substantive Board decision to dismiss an employee for cause is whether a reasoning mind reasonably could have determined that the factual conclusions reached were proved by the weight of the evidence.
