Yale loses employment suit

Yale_medical_school Even a helpful last-minute decision by the Connecticut Supreme Court, which held that Yale's employment handbook creates an administrative process that must be exhausted before litigation can begin, didn't keep the university from getting hammered by a jury in a lawsuit by three radiologists from the medical school.
