SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Key witnesses took the stand Monday in a civil suit brought by San Diego State University's former women' s basketball coach.

Men's coach Steve Fischer testified along with the university's director of employee relations Heather Benwill. Former coach Beth Burns is suing her former employer, San Diego State University, after claiming she was fired in retaliation for demanding equal treatment of women’s athletics programs.

However, school officials claim it was because she struck an assistant coach.
