Charleston School of Law has been sued by former professors. Twice.
Both plaintiffs claim the owners have not proved the school is in a financial exigency, or state of emergency, and say the owners have ignored the requirements of their tenured statuses. They claim tenured status requires the school to justify their dismissal with rational and objective criteria, provide a year’s notice of termination with pay and provide preferential hiring and recall rights.I'm honestly having a difficult time finding a side to root against here.
In one corner, we have esteemed, prestigious public service capitalists who appropriately removed profits from their business enterprise only to be whacked by a recession that had happened five years earlier and a sabotaged exit plan. In the other corner, we have tenured law professors exhibiting the highest values of academic freedom by taking high amounts of compensation to substitute for their would-be BigLaw salaries demanding that tenure be ridiculously expansive.
Can you tie a lawsuit?
