In legal maneuver No. 1,433, WVU’s lawyers would like to know where the Rodriguez Family lived last month.
West Virginia University attorneys have asked U.S. District Judge John Bailey for permission to place former football coach Rich Rodriguez and his wife Rita Rodriguez under oath and ask them where he lived when the university sued him.
The university disputes Rodriguez’s claim that he established citizenship in Michigan before the university sued him in Monongalia Circuit Court in Morgantown.
The weird part about this — and I think it encapsulates everything about this drama — is it has nothing to really do with the lawsuit, but is just meant to determine jurisdiction and where the case can be tried. So, in short,Â we might have depositions to determine where we have a trial.
