TSU students claim they were retaliated against

A jury began hearing testimony today in a case involving three former Texas Southern University students who helped shine the light on big problems within that school. The so-called 'TSU three' protested the university's handling of its money, which eventually led to criminal charges against some of the university's top leaders, including former TSU President Priscilla Slade. The former students are now suing TSU regents, saying the school retaliated against them by having them unlawfully arrested.

The state attorney general's office, representing the TSU board of regents, says they were properly disciplined.
