Awwwww. It couldn't happen to a nicer university...except maybe Yale.
Another act of justice in academia also occurred this week: The University of Colorado plans to fire Ward Churchill after two committees found significant evidence of research misconduct and "repeated and deliberate" infractions of scholarship rules. He will of course, sue; and enter into the poor victim role with great enthusiasm.
You might even say for both of these situations, that the chickens have come home to roost.
