Four Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) employees, who took the decision that appointed Jaak Aaviksoo as the institution's rector to court, have dropped the case.

The employees, including two professors, said the initial voting by the university's Board of Governors on May 22 was flawed as it should not have gone on to a fifth vote, which secured Aaviksoo the necessary number of votes.

The four said the fourth vote should have been final, and as it failed, the board should have been disbanded.

The entire process of naming Aaviksoo as the new head took a number of turns, leading to a few of the board resigning and one member being recalled. Aaviksoo was finally named as rector on July 30, after a new vote took place by the Board of Governors, with Aaviksoo receiving the minimum eight votes he needed.
