Pogin on the Kipnis lawsuit

Interesting guest post on Itchy's blog by Pogin about the Kipnis lawsuit that I haven't seen discussed elsewhere: http://blog.jichikawa.net/2017/05/guest-post-kipnis-on-title-ix.html

What do people make of it? It seems pretty weak as an example of Kipnis playing fast and loose with the facts. (The commenters give Pogin a mauling in the comments below). At worst, it proves that she's not a lawyer and so her pronouncements on technical legal matters should be taken with a pinch of salt. I don't see how it does very much at all to bolster the case against Kipnis.

The piece is well-written and informative, and corrects Kipnis on a factual matter related to the heart of her main topic. Sure it's not the most important criticism in the world, but Pogin doesn't pretend that it is. She defends her post well in the comments.

It's fine to admit when there are legitimate factual corrections of Kipnis even if you are on her side overall.

All of this is fodder for the lawsuit. Those who were involved in any of the Ludlow-Kipnis business at Northwestern would be advised to keep their powder dry until the suit survives a motion to dismiss. Engaging in further public colloquy does not help Jane Doe's case. But these folks just can't stop yapping and re-litigating this matter in the press. Big mistake, legally speaking.

The regressive left appeals to facts when and only when they find it convenient to do so. This is such a time.

Instead of all of the dramatic responses to this single blog post, maybe just say: Pogin pointed out a weird and kind of embarrassing inaccuracy in Kipnis' book. The End.

The judge will be ruling in a day or two to dismiss Leydon-Hardy's lawsuit against Kipnis. What will these monsters do then? How will the corrupt Lackey survive? Stay tuned!

If I'm reading the latest docket text correctly, Jon, you're mistaken. It says, in full:

"MINUTE entry before the Honorable John Robert Blakey: Motion hearing held on 12/6/2017. Defendant's motion to dismiss [24] is taken under advisement and will be ruled on by separate order. Oral agreed motion to stay case until 1/23/2018 is granted. Status hearing set for 1/23/2018 at 9:45 a.m. in Courtroom 1203. Mailed notice (gel, )"

Sounds to me like no news until January 23? But INAL. Are you?
