We have previously discussed the case of Widener School of Law professor Lawrence Connell who was suspended after using Dean Linda Ammons in hypotheticals in class (here and here). Connell had been charged with engaging in racial and sexual discrimination and harassment in how he taught his criminal law class.
According to a press release (pdf) from Connell’s attorneys, the Widener University committee impaneled to review the charges “unanimously cleared law professor Larry Connell of charges that he was a racist, a sexist and a danger to students.”
Connell said: “Once again the faculty of the law school spoke clearly about the tactics of Dean Ammons in her attempt to rid the campus of my conservative voice. This is the second time the faculty refused to sign on to her vendetta against me.”
