Unsucessful Law Professor Job Applicant Loses Discrimination Case

(Dobkin v. Univ. of Iowa,  Iowa Ct. App.  No. 2-1096/12-1012,  2/13/13) is an interesting case. The court held that the lower court  properly denied admission of an article from a law journal newspaper written by a witness for the age-protected job applicant who was denied an employment offer at the law school, despite contentions that opinions contained in the article were based on empirical evidence and that the law school “opened [the] door” for the article's admission, where the article was inadmissible hearsay with no applicable exception. 

One of these days law schools are going to start to get hit for institutional age discrimination.
