Harvard Law School's statement on its withdrawal from the rankings

I noted yesterday that both Yale and Harvard were withdrawing from the charade.  Here is Dean Manning's statement on HLS's decision.

If over the next week, most of the other top 10-20 law schools withdraw, will be in trouble.  It would undoubtedly be excellent for legal education if its current master were dethroned:  schools could resume making all decisions--from admissions to expenditures--based solely on academic considerations.  I recently mentioned three scenarios that might finish off, but I hadn't thought of this one!
