Chemerinsky Re-Hired as UC Irvine Law Dean

Good news in the academic freedom department. Liberal Law Prof Erwin Chemerinsky has been rehired to be the dean of the University of California's (Irvine)law school.

Via the AP:

The new Donald Bren School of Law will be the first new public law school in California in 40 years and is expected to welcome its first class in 2009.

Chemerinsky taught for 21 years at the University of Southern California law school before moving to Duke University in 2004. In April 2005, Legal Affairs magazine named him one of the top 20 legal thinkers in America.

    I'd really like to know the whole backstory here, too. The David Horowitzes of the world must be apoplectic about this triumph of real academic freedom.
