“Marquette will not comment further on the issue at this time.”
This sort of thing just doesn’t fly in the #MeToo era.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports:
Marquette Law School professor suspended over student relationship
A Marquette University Law School professor who might otherwise weigh in as an expert on such issues has been suspended over allegations he had an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Paul Secunda, a well-known blogger and authority on labor and employment law, was dismissed from his teaching duties two weeks from the end of this past semester.
Marquette officials declined to discuss specifics of the law school’s concerns. The university only issued this statement:
“Paul Secunda has been removed from his duties, including teaching, at Marquette University as the result of information developed from an investigation that began last May. Marquette will not comment further on the issue at this time.”
Secunda did not reply to requests for an interview, but did release a statement through his attorney, Jennifer Walther:
“I assume Marquette University has chosen to act as it has toward me to protect the University. This does not diminish the great respect I have for this institution and my fellow professors.
“Nonetheless, I cannot stand by idly in the face of what I believe to be an injustice. I have confidence in the process Marquette and the faculty have established to protect tenured professors in these circumstances, and believe I will clear my name at the end.”
