Coming to UCI Law: Erwin Chemerinsky

In a reversal of last week's decision by UCI chancellor Michael Drake, liberal law professor Erwin Chemerinsky will become the first dean of the new law school at UC Irvine.

And I'm sure Erwin and others on the left, who claim to believe so strongly in "academic freedom," will be leading the fight to re-invite Larry Summers to speak to the UC Regents...not.

Update: Patterico has the news that Chemerinsky has just lost a notably stupid case, in which he argued that the Caterpillar company should be liable for the death of a woman who "sat in front of a bulldozer trying to raze the homes of Palestinian terrorists/terrorist sympathizers."

According to David Horowitz, "Chemerinsky's argument is that Caterpillar is liable for the death of Corrie because it should have known that the Israelis would use the bulldozers to violate international law."

Congrats to UCI on hiring a really intelligent, ethical attorney to head their new law school. (Yes, that was sarcasm.)

There are just no words, Laura. The absudity of it stands on its own.

I hate to think of someone low enough to engage in that kind of frivolous lawsuit training the minds of the future lawyers of America...
