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

Luke Gormally Signs the Petition

Luke Gormally, former Director and Senior Research Fellow at the Linacre Centre for Healthcare Ethics, signed the petition supporting the reinstatement of Professors Safranek, Pucillo, and Lyons. Ave Watch has posted Mr. Gormally's comments, which include:
During my annual visits to the Law School I had ample opportunity to come to know and admire the calibre of its excellent faculty. I have gradually become aware of the strength of the case for saying that Professor Safranek in particular is the victim of a serious injustice. I felt that the least I could do was to signal my solidarity with those who have petitioned for restoration of the employment of Professors Safranek, Lyons and Pucillo. My original impressions of the intellectual and Catholic vitality of Ave Maria School of Law are intimately connected with the character and commitment of those men and their colleagues. I deplore what has happened to them and the consequent damage to the original ethos of the Law School.
