Duquesne Law Professor Settles Suit; Ottawa Law Prof Sues Former Colleague

About a year ago I reported that Professor Vanessa Brown-Barbour, an associate professor at Duquesne Law, had sued her employer on the grounds that she was improperly passed over for the position of interim dean. We don't know the details, but it appears that the case settled last week.   

Meanwhile, up the road a piece - in Ontario - University of Ottawa law professor Joanne St. Lewis is suing her old colleague, Denis Rancourt (a former physics professor) for defamation.  Rancourt called St. Lewis "Allan Rock's House Negro" in his blog U of O Watch.  (Rock, a former political figure in Canada is now the president of the University of Ottawa.)  The post remains active; you can find it here.
