Teacher Univ. of Michigan never closes for weather due to a lawsuit

Comment: The University of Michigan will never suspend classes due to
often-repeated story that links a never-closing policy to a rumored
lawsuit by a law school student for tuition money lost when the university
closed due to inclement weather. I've never heard whether or not the suit
was successful or not.

Is it true that a law suit by a student is the cause? If not, what is the
cause of such a ridiculous policy?
