Yale's Eskridge Tells Congress He Was Denied Tenure at Virginia Because of Sexual Orientation Discrimination

This blog has the relevant excerpt from the testimony by William Eskridge, Jr. (Yale); it also contains a link to the full testimony (the relevant portion is on pp. 85 ff.).   It does read a bit as "settling a score," but knowing nothing of the underlying merits, it may well be a score that deserves to be settled.  I wonder whether the University of Virginia Law School will issue a formal response.
