FUMARE

Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

Dropping like flies.

Are the rumors true? Has the Honorable William H. Pryor tendered his resignation from the illustrious AMSL Board of Governors?

The second federal judge in the same year? Fumare thinks this is rather odd for a governor who was just appointed last December. While we have no doubt that his docket keeps him busy, we also suspect that he realizes the significant problems with the "sole proprietor" model of running law schools and its obvious consequences, such as the bad PR, the unjust--and bizarre--firing of a beloved professor, and no confidence resolutions in the Dean. (Perhaps merely the prospect of flesh eating mosquitoes is reason enough for getting the heck out of Dodge.) We here at Fumare hope and pray that the remaining Board Members make the right call and decide not to follow the whims of the Chairman.

We all know the high esteem in which the Board holds our current students, so I am confident that they will be milling around the school--as they have every fall for the past 5 years--in the hopes of encountering the students that are, after all, the sole reason for the school. Hopefully, I too will have the opportunity to chat with them. Everyone knows where to find me: right outside the library.
UPDATE: JUDGE PRYOR HAS INDEED RESIGNED. HIS RESIGNATION LETTER WAS READ BY DEAN DOBRANSKI AT TODAY'S MEETING (SEPT. 28, 2006) WITH THE STUDENTS AT 12:15. MORE ON THE MEETING FORTHCOMING. REMEMBER FOLKS...YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!
