NachtLaw beats the University of Michigan in federal court

In a decision today, a federal judge ruled Professor Pamela Smock could proceed in her case that she was denied due process because the University punished her without allowing her to cross-examine her accusers. The decision will require the University to change its procedures in investigating and punishing professors. David Nacht states "bureaucrats and administrators have too much power. This lawsuit and this decision help accused professors level the playing field."

College campuses are strange places; students who live on campus are mostly under the lawful drinking age. Yet they live in a culture which is consumed by heavy alcohol consumption for socializing. Most of this alcohol consumption occurs in privately owned spaces, such as fraternities or sororities or apartments that are rented. Yet the activities that occur in these private spaces are dominated by students who all attend the same institution.
