Tools

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Alabama A&M University and its research institute have cut ties with each other in an out-of-court settlement.

AL.com (http://bit.ly/11tnAsC ) reports the university and its research institute — which was founded in 1999 — agreed to end its relationship after the institute moved off campus in 2012. The settlement is the result of a lawsuit the school filed in 2011.

In a separation agreement obtained by The Huntsville Times, the research institute agreed to drop all affiliations with the university and has adopted a new name — the Huntsville International Research Institute.

The research institute was founded to work with local industry and government agencies, and the university has retained the right to create another institute.
