Excerpt: Yale Law School is failing. For reasons that appear to be associated with her support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, the school seems to have a vendetta against Professor Amy Chua. Chua was banned from teaching Yale Law’s important “small group” classes after being accused of, well, something. A deep-dive investigative report by The New York Times found no evidence that Chua had actually done anything wrong.
Now things have taken a turn for the worse. Two Yale Law School students have filed a federal lawsuit accusing the law school’s dean, Heather Gerken, associate dean, Ellen Cosgrove, and Diversity and Inclusion Director Yaseen Eldik of far more egregious behavior. The lawsuit claims that the defendants “worked together in an attempt to blackball two students of color from job opportunities as retaliation for refusing to lie to support the University’s investigation into a professor of color.” That professor was Amy Chua.
