UC Irvine's Shame

Hugh Hewitt has been commenting on UCI's disgraceful conduct toward law professor Erwin Chemerinsky, most recently with this post.

I don't know the professor personally, but I've had the opportunity to interview him when guest hosting "The Hugh Hewitt Show," and he's quite obviously a brilliant man, even though his views are decidedly those of the left. His horn book on constitutional law is a staple for law students, and friends of mine who took his class at USC have nothing but high praise for the excellence and impartiality of his teaching.

If it would be wrong for UCI to mistreat a well-qualified conservative, it's just as wrong for it to behave as it has toward Chemerinsky, an eminently qualified choice to lead its law school.

Apparently the academy's cowardice is, at least occasionally, directed to the left as well as the right.

This is first non-partisan post I have seen from Ms. Liebau, and I'd like to take the opportunity to congratulate her for it.

Coyote here.

Erwin lay down with dogs; he got up with fleas.
