More on the Thomas Jefferson Law School Lawsuit

TJFollowing up on Tuesday's post, Former Thomas Jefferson Law School Administrator Admits to Cooking Placement Stats:

In an interview with the ABA Journal, Thomas Jefferson School of Law dean Rudy Hasl called the allegations a "crock of crap."

He said the school never instructed any employee to falsify graduate employment data. He also said the data the school submitted to the ABA was accurate.

Hasl refused to discuss the circumstances surrounding Grant's departure from the school, citing the confidentiality of personnel records. But he said the matter will be fully addressed at a scheduled hearing in the case next month in court.

When you have to use terms like "crock of crap", you have already lost.

"Fantasy", "delusion", or "lie woven from whole cloth" sound somewhat more .... educated.

A mechanism (judicial or otherwise) for surveying the relevant law grads, in the cited cohort years, would be *very* valuable at this juncture.

Schools, constantly on the make for alumni donations (a largely doomed enterprise for reasons now widely known...) have extensive alumni contact information - the plaintiffs would do well to subpoena it.

Dean Hasl (best name for a law school administrator, ever?) would doubtlessly cite "alumni privacy" concerns...

The whole rotten edifice is crumbling.
