Dershowitz: Zimmerman prosecutor threatened to sue Harvard
Fox News ^ | 6-7-2012 | Joshua Rhett Miller

“It’s 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,” Dershowitz’s column continued.

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?
