MORE EVIDENCE THAT SUING UNIVERSITIES CAN BE LUCRATIVE: Judge rules UNCW must pay professor $700,000 for legal fees. “The University of North Carolina Wilmington has to pay more than $700,000 in legal fees in a civil suit involving one of its own professors, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. . . . Adams, who declined comment when reached by phone Tuesday, accused the university of religious- and speech-based discrimination when he was not promoted to full professor in 2006. A Christian, Adams was open about his views in print and on radio and television programs.”
Lots of hungry lawyers out there, and lots of university administrators who think the law doesn’t apply to them. A recipe for riches!
