Faculty "Mutiny" at Ave Maria Law School

Ave_mariaFollowing up on my recent posts on the controversy surrounding Ave Maria law school's proposed move from Michigan to Florida:  this week's Chronicle of Higher Education has a detailed article on the faculty "mutiny":   Conflict Over Relocation Divides a Catholic Law School; Professors Say They Have Not Been Part of the Decision to Move from Michigan to Florida, by Katherine Mangan:

More than half of the professors at Ave Maria School of Law are fighting the move to Ave Maria, Fla., the town being created by Thomas S. Monaghan, the Domino's Pizza mogul who founded the law school eight years ago. Critics, including many alumni and students, say the move to the Catholic-oriented town between Naples and Immokalee, Fla., would jeopardize the independent law school's progress. They accuse Mr. Monaghan of moving a successful law school to prop up a struggling university in a town that has already attracted controversy.
