Lots more, in fact. Rescinding a job offer is bad form under any circumstance, but doing it because the guy wrote an oped in the LAT? "It wasnít the subject, it was its existence," UCI Chancellor Michael Drake told the Times, which seems like an awfully dumb explanation (calling Mike Sitrick - this guy needs help!) Anyway, the story made it on Larry Mantle's "Airtalk" this morning on KPCC, and it's big news in the legal world (Chemerinsky, always a pretty savvy media guy, is presenting his case.) And, of course, you have to wonder about the backstory. After all, it is the Donald Bren School of Law. You mean to say that this very right-wing real estate guy didnít have a hand in what happened? Itís hard to believe, even though Drake insists itís the case. If you're interested in a good roundup, try Paul Caron at TaxProf Blog.
