Scott Ginsburg (LAW ’78) is suing Georgetown University Law Center for breach of contract and fraud.
Ginsburg, a Dallas businessman, donated $5 million to the law center in 2000, designated toward construction of the proposed Scott K. Ginsburg Health and Fitness Center on campus, and another $2.5 million over the next decade. However, the fitness center currently does not bear his name.
Law center officials offered Ginsburg an altered donation agreement that excluded naming rights when the Securities and Exchange Commission accused Ginsburg of insider trading. However, Ginsburg claimed that he did not sign an altered agreement with Georgetown.
Ginsburg is attempting to recover the full $7.5 million of his donations to Georgetown.
