Northampton County Judge Emil Giordano issued a one-sentence ruling Monday against former Lehigh University graduate student Megan Thode.
 
Thode had asked to have the grade raised to a B and had sought $1.3 million in damages.
 
She alleged her professor in a 2009 graduate-level therapist internship course retaliated against her over her support of gay marriage. She said the grade prevented her from becoming a licensed therapist.
 
Giordano ruled against Thode earlier this year, saying the reason for her C-plus was purely academic and nothing more.
 
Her attorney, Richard Orloski, had asked the judge earlier this month to either reverse his ruling or grant Thode a new trial.
