IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The trial has been delayed for a former member of the University of Iowa women’s rowing team who says she developed a painful condition in her leg muscles because of intense and poorly supervised workouts.
Former coxswain Margaret Krusing’s lawsuit against the university had been scheduled for trial in Iowa City on Tuesday.
Citing a scheduling conflict with one of the attorneys involved, a court administrator entered an order Friday delaying the case. A hearing has been set for next week to reschedule the trial, likely sometime in the coming months.
Krusing says she developed exertional compartment syndrome because of training during her freshman year, which made it difficult for her to walk. She is seeking damages for medical expenses and pain and suffering, alleging trainers and coaches were negligent.
