An absolute disgrace.
That's the only way to describe what's happening to Prof. Steven Safranek at the Ave Maria School of Law.
Details here and here.
Full disclosure: I was a student at the University of Detroit School of Law when the three signatories and Prof. Safranek were professors at that institution. Professors Murphy and Falvey were my Torts and Trial Practice professors, respectively, and exacting ones at that. Ironically enough, Bernard Dobranski was also Dean during part of that time, and his departure was a blow to the school.
Obviously, I don't have all the details, but from what I know of the persons involved and the dreadful treatment of professors at AMSoL (Charles Rice) who don't get with the Florida program, I'm siding with the professors.
That, and there's nothing remotely Catholic about tearing away the livelihood of a husband and father of seven. Few of the people I have criticized on this blog have done anything remotely as rancid. When a public face of "orthodox" [sic] Catholicism does things like this, no wonder people flinch away from it. And rightfully so.
