Skip to comments.Dershowitz: Zimmerman prosecutor threatened to sue Harvard

Its certainly professional to respond, but by calling the dean and threatening to sue the school, which she knows she cannot do, is unprofessional, Dershowitz told FoxNews.com. I would welcome a lawsuit from Corey. It would give me a chance to prove what an awful thing she did.
When the communications official explained to her that I have a right to express my opinion as a matter of academic freedom, and that Harvard has no control over what I say, she did not seem to understand, Dershowitz wrote. She persisted in her nonstop whining, claiming that she is prohibited from responding to my attacks by the rules of professional responsibility without mentioning that she has repeatedly held her own press conferences and made public statements throughout her career.
She should go back to law school, where she will learn that it is never appropriate to submit an affidavit that contains a half truth, because a half truth is regarded by the law as a lie, and anyone who submits an affidavit swears to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, Dershowitzs column continued.

The prosecutor in Florida seems to be a real bully.
You might be surprised. Study him a bit more. He's actually only a liberal idiot about 50% of the time. He's a strong anti-Muzzie and pro-national defense.
A broken clock is accurate a couple of times a day.
After being lectured on what she should have known about her own job, libs always doubles down on stupidity - resort to intimidation. And in this case, another wrong move.
Psssst, Corey, in this case, two wrongs don't make it right.
As I understand it, she said she is under no obligation to provide the the whole truth and nothing but the truth on her “affidavit” despite having taken an oath to do precisely that.
Angela Corey has intentionally mislead the court, and quite frankly she should be in jail right now instead of Zimmerman.
The USA is no longer a just country.
It is Corey, like Nifong, who should be dis-barred, removed
from this case and tar and feathered.
I’m an attorney (reformed prosecutor, actually) and Dershowitz used to nauseate me. However, if I were accused of a crime I didn’t commit he’s at the top of the list of the people I’d want next to me in the Courtroom.
What Dershowitz is absolutely implacable about is the idea that the government is bound by its own rules. He is very strong on the Rule of Law. Might have something to do with his Jewish historical perspective; he knows what happens when a government no longer recognizes the Rule of Law.
Wonder if Dersh still regards people like us as “ultimate evil,” as he called us during the Clinton impeachment.
“The prosecutor in Florida seems to be a real bully.”
She seems to me to be a narcissistic dummy.
Dersh is also extremely vocal about infringement of free speech on college campuses, particularly the hypocrisy of warmly embracing left-wing freaks like Ward Churchill while conservative or even moderate speakers are often banned. Alan isn't nearly so accepting of political correctness as many of his fellow academics would have him be.
Absolutely. She's comically inept and blatantly corrupt, a dangerous combination when combined with the power she wields.
I wonder what he thinks of left-wing freak (and Harvard-spawned faux "native American" senatorial candidate) Elizabeth Warren?
“As I understand it, she said she is under no obligation to provide the the whole truth and nothing but the truth on her affidavit despite having taken an oath to do precisely that.”
Welcome to “Nifong II”.
Prosecutors are immune, don’t ya know...
After what Corey did in the Marissa Alexander case, overcharging her and slapping her with 20 years, that perturbed even the HuffPuff Post, one has to wonder why the governor appointed her to this case??? Was the governor expecting the same here or something different????
Alan Dershowitz is a stand up guy, I disagree with him on some political issues, like who to vote for, but he is not a doctrinaire liberal, he’s more of libertarian with a little bit bigger government than I would agree to, but his passion is the law, and you will find that he and Judge Nipolitano would agree on the law a great deal!
Disagreement is not a reason to make enemy’s, violence and injustice are!
Concerning Mr. Zimmerman, I don’t know if he committed any crime, other than being a cop want-a-bee, but he will have his day in court, and the jury will have the duty to decide if a crime was committed or if politics has inspired an overzealous prosecutor to wade into a witch hunt.
Dershowsitz endorsed and was an ardent supporter of Joel Pollack (R) in his 2010 challenge to Jan Schakowsky (D) in IL-9.
FL Attorney General and RINO, Pam Bondi hand picked her for this case
I might up the percentage to 85% but otherwise I agree. The man has a set of core beliefs and turns on the leftists in a flash when they disagree with his beliefs.
Going back to Clinton in the White House, I'll wager there have been eight to ten times that a Dershowitz statement has left people on FR posting "I never thought I would agree with Dershowitz, but . . ."
I had Dersh for Criminal Law. He is absolutely hard over on opposing Government arrogance and defiance of the law and required legal procedures in criminal cases. Nifong II stirred the wrong pot when she called Harvard.
Apart from the merits of the case, I am slightly amused at the idea of a prosecutor threatening to sue, not only a professor at Harvard Law School, but Harvard University. Let me think for a few seconds about the chances of success.
Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever sued Harvard Law School and won the case?
