Effects of the Financial Crisis on Some Law Schools

Story here, with many links.   Some of the schools mentioned (like Florida State) are, in fact, doing significant hiring, notwithstanding budget cuts.  Here's a question that readers of my philosophy blog have raised:  namely, isn't in a violation of the employment contracts to force furloughs on faculty and then cut their salaries proportionally?  I hope some well-informed person in Cyberspace will blog the answer and send a trackback here!
