KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - An April 2015 trial date has been set for former Lady Vols media director Debby Jennings' lawsuit against the University of Tennessee and athletic director Dave Hart.

U.S. District Judge Karen Caldwell issued an order Friday setting a trial date of April 27, 2015.

Jennings sued Tennessee and Hart individually last year while alleging that age and sex discrimination led to her forced retirement from the school.

Jennings was 57 years old when she left her job after 35 years in May 2012 as the university consolidated the men's and women's athletic departments.
