More Drama Between Leach and Texas Tech

The Texas Supreme Court wants more information in Mike Leach's lawsuit against Texas Tech, a fresh
sign of life for the fired coach's claims against the school.

The state's highest civil court on Friday asked Leach and Texas Tech to file briefs by Sept. 19.

In 2009, the university fired Leach two days after suspending him amid allegations of mistreating a player with a concussion.

Leach later sued for wrongful termination.

A decision in January from the 7th Court of Appeals upheld Texas Tech's assertion of sovereign immunity from such lawsuits, derailing Leach's pursuit of monetary damages.

Texas Tech is appealing the lower court's ruling that Leach could pursue a non-monetary finding that he was wrongfully fired.
