North Dakota’s Board of Higher Education reached a settlement Oct. 26 with the NCAA that gives the University of North Dakota three years to persuade Sioux tribes to support the school’s Fighting Sioux nickname.

In September, the judge sealed future court filings in the case to facilitate settlement talks between the parties.

The Reporters Committee has been following the matter, and on Oct. 1 urged the court to unseal records related to the case.
