(As some readers will know, I overlapped at Texas with Sullivan, whom I knew only slightly; I was, of course, on the law faculty with her husband, Douglas Laycock, for most of my 13 years at Texas. I should add I've had no "inside" information on this at all; indeed, I've had no communication with Laycock, other than a one sentence note of acknowledgment he sent after I e-mailed him to express my condolences about the mess there. As our colleagues from Texas will know, he and I were often on opposite sides of some important institutional issues! Like everyone else in our profession, I have the highest regard for his scholarly work--he is the "trailing spouse" every law faculty would like to get!)
UPDATE: Stephen Bainbridge (UCLA), a UVA alum, comments.
Yes, the site is trash. But now at least maybe we know the top 50 tweeting law professors. I particularly love the fact that the "top 50" list, carefully numbered from 1 to 50, is "in no particular order".
I've got more details here. As the President in question happens to be married to distinguished legal scholar Douglas Laycock, this unfortunate move has serious ramifications for the Law School at UVA as well.
