University of Oregon law professor Merle Weiner (left) has been threatened with a lawsuit for her references to a particular lawsuit in an article she wrote that appeared in the University of San Francisco Law Review. And she's discovered that she's all alone. Neither her employer nor the law review will defend her, even though she has a legal opinion that her report was accurate. Rather than face litigation, the law review reportedly has pulled the disputed reference from its online version of the article.
The article, for those interested, is Strengthening Article 20, 38 U.S.F. L. Rev. 701 (2004).
