University; Criminal Allegations; Slander
A prominent business college professor was fired and barred from the campus when the University claimed that he had been caught on a security videotape "vandalizing" school property. The Firm, in association with another local firm, sued the University and its president in Federal Court. After several years of hard-fought discovery and litigation, the case was finally resolved at mediation (for a confidential amount that was reported in the Wall Street Journal as $5 million). The professor has resumed his career and now serves as a dean at a prestigious northeastern university.
