Round One in Duncan Law v. ABA Goes to the ABA
Last week, US District Court Judge Thomas A. Varlan denied Duncan School of Law's motion for a temporary restraining order and for a temporary injunction in the law school's antitrust and due process lawsuit against the ABA for failing to grant the school provisional accreditation. Judge Varalan wrote that Duncan School of Law is "unlikely" to succeed on the merits in the litigation in the court's Memorandum Opinion and Order.
On The Faculty Lounge, Gary Rosin outlines where Judge Varlan's opinion tracked the ABA's brief in opposition at Duncan v. ABA: No TRO or Temporary Injunction.
