“The university has taken a tremendous hit to its prestige, and it’s hard to see how that can be remedied without (Chemerinsky) being re-offered the position, or some form of censure of Drake’s decision,” said Mark Warschauer, a UCI professor of education.Ã‚Â
And apparently, Professor Warschauer isn’t the only one who would like to see Erwin Chemerinsky reinstated as UCI Law School Dean. According to The Register, there’s a growing campaign to require UCI to remedy its grave error by giving Chemerinsky the job they gave him to do in the first place. And even though a few, like OC GOP “Consligliere” Mike Schroeder and LA County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, are still patting themselves on the back for driving Chemerinsky out of town, their view is looking increasingly like the view of a small, partisan minority. Even many Republicans have condemned UCI’s firing of their law school dean after hiring him only 21 days before.
So what can be done now to put this nasty scandal to rest? How about reinstating Erwin Chemerinsky as UCI Law School Dean?! What do YOU think about that? After all, since there was no good reason for firing him in the first place, shouldn’t Chemerinsky have his rightful position as UCI Law School Dean returned to him?
So what do you think about that? Am I missing something, or am I on to something here? I want to hear what you have to say about what should be the proper remedy to this national embarrassment of not just UCI, but of Orange County as a whole. Should Erwin Chemerinsky just stay out of town, or should he be reinstated as dean of the law school?
Go ahead. Make my day. Fire away, and have your say!
