Gregg Polsky Leaves Florida State for North Carolina

Polsky Faculty Lounge and Feminist Law Professors report that Gregg D. Polsky, Sheila M. McDevitt Professor of Law at Florida State, has accepted a senior offer at North Carolina.  Gregg previously was a tenured professor at Minnesota, a visiting professor at Florida, and Professor in Residence at the IRS's Office of Chief Counsel (2007-08).  (This is the second major tax loss for Florida State this year, as Brian Galle has accepted a lateral offer at Boston College.)

The legal academy is so entertaining. Observing the banter and chater on these various "law" blogs is both hillarious and oddly telling.

You guys should consider lawprof trading cards..."I'll trade my Sunstein for your Lessig." "What, you've got the San Diego Brian Leiter rookie card!?! I'll give you a Fisk and a Chemerinsky for that!!!"

Law schools are like sports franchises trying to fill their roster with perceived stars. It's awesome!

Meanwhile, the serious scholars with PhDs in serious subjects on your campuses will continue the "real" research and scholarship.

Yes, but if somebody has moved three times in the last few years, is it a big surprise that they would move again?
