In addition to the numerous constitutional lawyers, electronic freedom fighters, consumer advocacy and human rights groups, and media organizations that have condemned Thomas M. Cooley's lawsuits against bloggers and internet commentators and stood up in support of this very blog now comes a law professor (from a REAL law school) calling out Cooley for its unethical abuse of the same legal system it hypocritically attempts to "teach" to its students along with knowledge, skills, and ethics (LULZ). In response to a commentator who references this blog and points out the absurdity and baseless nature of Cooley's "lawsuit", ironically pointing that Cooley will likely be responsible for creating Michigan law on anonymity (on the wrong end of the law, of course), the most honest law professor in the industry, Paul Campos of Inside the Law School Scam, responds by branding Cooley's claims as a SLAPP. The word SLAPP and Cooley are becoming synonymous, it seems.

Here is another piece that picked up on Cooley's frivolous SLAPPs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SLAPP) against internet bloggers that slipped through my radar a few months back. Link is below the excerpts.

"Thomas M. Cooley Law School, a bit like the hunt for the alleged strawberry miscreant in "Caine Mutiny," is relentlessly pursuing once-anonymous blogger [Rockstar05] who had been critical of it.  This seems incongruous for an institution of professional learning."

"But, in terms of the law school, the stakes are sky-high for the credibility and marketability of it as a law school.  This pursuit of the alleged miscreant can turn him into a digital folk hero. The school would come across, at best, as thin-skinned.  At worst, it could be perceived as engaging in a complex scheme to conceal accurate information about its admissions policies, job placement record, and the compensation its JDs receive."

Here is a fine piece linked below exposing Cooley for its shameless abuse of the legal system and blatant disregard of the First Amendment it hypocritically purports to "teach" its students as a law school. Perhaps that is why Cooley students are some of the worst in the country at passing the bar and fare even worse in terms of finding employment. Adding insult to injury is the measly $49,000 per year a Cooley Law grad can command in private practice as the most lucrative job market after dumping $165,000+ on a toilet Cooley degree for those who do manage to find employment. Check out the link below.

"What can we say about a law school, whose purpose is to train future lawyers, that doesn't believe in the fundamental right of freedom of speech under the First Amendment?

Such is the case with the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, which is suing a blogger critical of it under a frivolous claim of defamation, which can best be described as a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (SLAPP) suit intended to intimidate free speech."
