8th Circuit Re-institutes Discrimination Lawsuit by Unsuccessful Republican Faculty Candidate Against Iowa Law School Dean

Following up on my prior posts (links below): the Eighth Circuit yesterday reversed the district court and reinstituted a lawsuit filed against former Iowa Law School Dean (and Tax Prof) Carolyn Jones by Teresa R. Wagner, Associate Director of the school's Writing Resource Center, claiming that she was twice rejected for a legal writing faculty position because of her conservative political views. Wagner v. Jones, No. 10-2588 (8th Cir. Dec. 28, 2011).
