Happy Friday. It’s time for some updates in everyone’s favorite legal-academic soap opera, As the Yale Law School World Turns.1
As usual, I assume familiarity with all recent scandals and controversies at Yale Law School, including Dinner Party-gate, Trap House-gate, and Antiracism Training-gate. Also as usual, I reached out to the YLS administration for comment, providing them by email with detailed bullet points listing the core factual points in this post. The administration issued this statement, through spokesperson Debra Kroszner: “We are not going to respond to speculation and false accusations made anonymously in the press. Dean Gerken is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of faculty deliberations, as is our norm, and we have no further comment.”
Alrighty then! There’s a lot to cover, so let’s dive right in.
Evidently, David Lat said nasty things about me in print during the recent unpleasantness regarding this blog. I did not read them and am too lazy to look them up now. But nevertheless I urge you to read this if you are interested, but otherwise just never visit this substack. That'll teach Mr. David Lat. Or not. He went to YLS as so many of us did.
