Former Keuka professor sues college over dismissal

A former Keuka College professor is suing the institution, alleging she was fired due to her age.

The Finger Lakes Times reported Tuesday that Stacey Mirinaviciene, who filed the complaint on April 18 in the New York State Supreme Court of Yates County, claimed the college used COVID-19 disruptions as an excuse to terminate tenured faculty members.

Mirinaviciene, representing herself, named College President Amy Storey, Provost Bradley Fuster, and the Board of Trustees as defendants. In response, the college, through attorney Katherine McClung, denied many of her allegations.

The case and allegations hinge on the argument that her termination in 2022 was part of a pattern to replace older, tenured faculty with younger, less-experienced adjunct instructors.
