Blog Emperor Caron has the details. I suspect that part of the plan is to make up lost revenue with the new B.A. in which law faculty will teach. All-in-all, some interesting strategic moves by U of Arizona that will be watched closely by schools nationwide.

Dear UVA students: in prying into Prof. Laycock's e-mails you are attacking his academic freedom
Douglas Laycock (Virginia) is, I would agree, on the wrong side of a number of recent religious liberty issues in both his advocacy and in his scholarship, but students requesting his e-mails are engaged in harassment and intimidation that infringe upon his academic freedom. Cut it out, kids! No good will come of this kind of mischief. (You also won't succeed in stifling Prof. Laycock, so you're also wasting your time. Try talking to him! He's not that scary.)
