I couldn’t help but notice the law firm that would be representing UMD’s former women’s athletic coaches in their pending Title 9 lawsuit.
Some of my readers may recognize the name from a previous blog entry. The Board’s hired gun who “investigated” Art Johnston was one of Fafinski’s legal partners, Mary Rice. Only in the case of Art, Ms. Rice was busy manufacturing and embellishing excuses for his unconstitutional removal.
I’m not all that surprised that this firm is well aware of the means by which large institutions, like UMD, can mistreat people. It’s just ironic that having helped hog tie Art Johnston for the offense, Fafinski can just as easily switch over to defense.
As they say, Justice is blind. So is the law.
