Widener Law Case Settles, Although Terms of Settlement Remain Unknown

It’s been a while since I blogged about the case of Professor Lawrence Connell, the Widener Law Professor who was brought up on disciplinary charges for the way he taught his criminal law class. Connell then filed suit in state court against Dean Linda Ammons, the law school, and the two students whose complaints formed the basis of the disciplinary charges.

Today I received the following e-mail from Connell’s lawyer, Thomas Neuberger:

“All claims amongst all parties have been resolved amicably and Professor Connell’s employment with the University and Law School has been concluded. Specific terms of the resolution are confidential. So, we have no further comment.”

So the civil case is over, and Connell has left Widener. I sure would like to hear more as to what actually happened at Widener that led to the charges in the first place.
