Nearly three years after being fired
from their jobs and four months after
winning a discrimination suit against the
University, three black former Dental
School employees got their jobs back on
Theresa Atkins, Delano Isabell and
Dawn Mitchell, all former instrument
processors at the Dental School sued the
University and Linda Vachon-DeMarco,
a Dental School supervisor, for discrim-
ination in their 1994 dismissal.
"I guess you could say they didn't
lynch them at the nearest tree, but they
did everything else," said prosecuting
attorney George Washington.
Washtenaw County District ,Court
Judge Donald Sheldon ruled in favor of
the prosecution's requests stating that the
'Dental School Three' be reinstated, that
the discipline remarks be admonished
from their records and that they receive
back pay from the the time of the jury's
February verdict until the time of rein-
"We won by the jury then and this is

inferior team - Knuble and Ward
were among the devastated Wolverines.
They hurt while watching their team
come so close to the NCAA champi-
onship, falling to Wisconsin in the
NCAA semifinals.

"It's been so long since I've won
anything important," Knuble said.
It took five years, but those memo-
ries have finally softened, and once
again the Joe exudes happy memories
for the pair.
All it took was a Stanley Cup
Both Ward and Knuble play for the
Detroit Red Wings and, with Saturday's
2-1 victory over the Philadelphia
Flyers, they are now champions.
"This is what you always play for in
the driveway, you play for the Stanley
Cup," Knuble said. "It's been incredi-
