A Threat to Accreditation: Defamation Judgment against an Accreditation Team Member.
Flygare, Thomas J.
Phi Delta Kappan, v61 n10 p706-07 Jun 1980
Delaware Law School founder Alfred Avins successfully sued accreditation team member James White for defamation as a result of comments made in 1974 and 1975. An appeals brief claims Avins was a "public figure," that he consented to accreditation, and that the accreditation process deserves court protection against such suits. (PGD)
