Federal Court Involvement in Academic Personnel Decisions: Impact on Peer Review.
Lee, Barbara A.
Journal of Higher Education, v56 n1 p38-54 Jan-Feb 1985

An analysis of academic discrimination cases in the federal courts demonstrates that judicial review is deferential to peer judgments and appears to have little impact on colleges' faculty personnel policies.
