“We have considered Lee’s remaining arguments and found them to be without merit”
Bandy Lee has been waging a legal war on Yale since at least 2022. It’s important to remember that this was all of her own doing.

Psychiatrist who called Trump supporters mentally ill loses in court against Yale
Former Yale University volunteer and researcher Bandy Lee has lost yet another lawsuit against the school in relation to the non-renewal of her agreement with her.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a prior ruling that found Yale acted lawfully when it decided not to renew an agreement with Lee, who had an unpaid role at the Ivy League university.
Lee (pictured) has not “adequately alleged a promise that Yale would not decline to renew her appointment on account of her public statements,” the three-judge panel ruled. The decision went on to review Lee’s claims and explain why they were being rejected.
“We have considered Lee’s remaining arguments and found them to be without merit,” the judges ruled in conclusion, upholding a district judge’s decision.
Lee’s unpaid opportunity at Yale was not renewed after she made diagnoses of President Donald Trump, his supporters and Harvard Law School’s Alan Dershowitz. She said supporters of Trump suffered from a “spread of ‘shared psychosis,’” as previously reported by The College Fix.
She sued the university in 2021. She also tweeted in October 2020 that Trump “spellbinds his followers ever more deeply” and compared him to Hitler, saying he was worse than the German dictator, before backtracking. She also wrote a book called “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” which included the opinions of 37 psychiatrists on the former president’s mental health.
She has also multiple times demanded that Trump be put on a 72-hour psychiatric hold.
Lee held a volunteer position at Yale, and the district judge had dismissed her claims of a contract violation. However, Lee argued that the position cost her valuable remuneration she would not receive without the prestige of Yale’s name.
