Academic Freedom Alliance weighs in on case of Professor Kilborn at Illinois/Chicago John Marshall Law School

As well they should!   Since the law school is clearly out of control, the UIC higher administration needs to step in!

UPDATE:  Keith Whittington (Princeton) points out to me that the Administration has "stepped in," to defend the witch hunt!  The statement simply repeats the allegations that were dispatched by Professor Koppelman in his CHE article.  The chilling effect of all this at the University of Illinois at Chicago (not just the law school) will be immense, now that the Administration has put faculty on notice that any stray remarks that are plainly neither harasasing nor discriminatory can trigger official investigations and sanctions.
