Law Professor Sues For Discrimination Against Conservatives

Sadly, I don't see this getting her any satisfaction.

Teresa R. Wagner, Associate Director of the University of Iowa College of Law Writing Resource Center, has filed a lawsuit against the school and its dean, Tax Prof Carolyn Jones, claiming that she was twice rejected for a legal writing faculty position because of her conservative political views.

I agree with one of the commenters: absent a smoking gun, this is probably an uphill battle.

I loved this quote from the article:

"Liberals talk about diversity, except when it comes to bringing in a different, conservative point of view."

Good luck with that. All Jones has to do is utter the magic word, "collegiality," and the lawsuit is all over.
