Former Assistant Dean, Tenured Law Prof Sue Cleveland-Marshall Dean, Claim Retaliation For Formation Of Faculty Union

Cleveland StateFollowing up on my previous posts (links below):  Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cleveland State University's Law School Dean Retaliated Against Associate Dean and Professor, Lawsuit Claims:

The former [assistant] dean and a professor at Cleveland State University's law school have sued Dean [and Tax Prof] Craig Boise and CSU, claiming Boise retaliated against them because the faculty formed a union [complaint].

Jean Lifter and Sheldon Gelman, who are married, contend in the lawsuit in U.S. District Court that they lost income and their constitutional rights were violated by Boise's actions following Gelman's union activities. ...

Lifter served as [assistant] dean, a non-faculty position, for 37 years at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law until she was terminated on June 30, 2014.

Gelman, a tenured professor from 1980 until his retirement in May, led the effort in 2012 that resulted in about 37 faculty members affiliating with the American Association of University Professors.
