… (as UD has always called it) has disappeared as a university (few students attend; almost no one graduates) but continues to thrive as a taxpayer-sponsored kleptomania/litigation machine. Corruption, virtually the only game on campus (uh, plus basketball), must be kept quiet in order to sustain itself, so the school’s constantly suing or threatening to sue students, professors, and administrators who tell the truth about what’s going on. CSU loses the suits, of course, and has to pay (the good people of Illinois have to pay) big settlement and legal costs.

Here’s the latest payout, the result of the school suing two faculty bloggers who did not conform, wrote CSU, to the “high standards of civility and professionalism [that] are central tenants [sic] of the University’s values.”

    Even by Chicago/Illinois bureaucrat standards, this one is inexplicable. It was beyond a foregone conclusion that they would lose and lose big in court.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    tp: I see it as its fate to repeat and repeat these failing, expensive lawsuits until someone puts the school out of its misery. I used to think the market would do that – almost no one attends – but apparently the school plans to continue functioning as a non-teaching, larcenous, litigating, institution.
