Emily Hairston and her father appeal the trial court's summary judgment in favor of Southern Methodist University and Brent Erwin on Hairston's claims for financial aid. The alleged actions by SMU and Erwin, allegedly offering a full scholarship and then reneging, do not meet the legal test for a claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress. The plaintiffs' other claims are barred by the statute of frauds and the defense of accord and satisfaction. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. Dallas Court of Appeals, No. 05-11-00860-CV, 04-30-2013.
