From The Chronicle:
Duke has hired former U.S. deputy attorney general Jamie Gorelick to assist in the defense against the federal civil rights lawsuit filed by three unindicted members of the 2005-2006 men's lacrosse team, University officials confirmed Wednesday. …The entire Chronicle report is here.
If the University was more transparent, Duke’s latest “hiring announcement” would have begun as follows:
President Brodhead and the trustees announced today the hiring of prominent Washington attorney Jamie Gorelick.But Brodhead never said that.
“I’m really, really happy to welcome Jamie Gorelick to the Duke team,” President Richard H. Brodhead said. “I’m confident she’ll be an enormous help to me and others as the University moves on and things get uglier and Dukier.”
