KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — A new trial date has been set for a lawsuit that former Tennessee associate director of sports medicine Jenny Moshak and two ex-Lady Vols strength coaches filed against the university.

U.S. District Judge Pamela Reeves has granted a joint motion to continue and pushed the trial date back to Dec. 1. The trial had been scheduled for June 23.

In their motion, both sides said they would need an additional five months to complete discovery.

Moshak, Heather Mason and Collin Schlosser filed a suit in October 2012 saying they performed similar tasks as employees who held similar positions for men's teams, but that they received less compensation either because of their gender or due to their association with women's teams. They're suing the university for discrimination and retaliation.
