"Lawsuit against LUS moves to federal court"

This Advertiser story is pretty much the same story that the Advocate carried yesterday. And my interpretation of the event remains the same. Where the lawsuit will be heard is less interesting than the fact that the lawsuit is an obvious ploy intended to give some, any, basis for smearing a valued Lafyette institution. (See yesterday's longer version) On reflection I have only one thing to add: it's not only the charges made that are intended to fuel negative publicity; it is also the extensive 10-year fishing expedition through LUS records that is intended to locate something, anything, that can be spun to tarnish LUS' reputation.

Watch for it. And when it appears, allow yourself some anger at the sorts of people who fund lawsuits like this.
