Three former Northwestern baseball staffers filed a lawsuit against the school for retaliatory discharge, harassment, bullying and abuse by former baseball coach Jim Foster. “The prejudicial and biased attitude of the former head coach that also included the mismanagement of the players and staff ultimately led to Foster’s firing, something that should have been done months ago,” said Christopher J. Esbrook, attorney for the Plaintiffs. “Northwestern had a responsibility to the players as well as to its staff to provide a safe and secure working environment.”
