Tyrone Hankerson Jr., a Howard University law student allegedly involved in an embezzlement scandal currently clouding the prestigious HBCU, is accusing the institution of leaking his financial information and plans to file a suit for $10 million, his lawyer James L. Walker Jr. told the AFRO. Hankerson will sue on the grounds of three counts: breach of a duty and negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and defamation, according to an advanced copy of the complaint obtained by the AFRO. The suit was filed against Howard University, Grant Grundy and Wayne A. I. Frederick, Howard University president. The complaint identified Grundy as the whistleblower who posted an anonymous entry on the blogging site Medium, which alleged that $1 million of financial aid money had been misappropriated over a period of years.
