+ - SLAPP-Happy Law School Itself Sued for Fraud->

ecgrimm writes: Slashdot recently covered a SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) filed by Thomas M. Cooley Law School against some Internet critics. http://yro.slashdot.org/story/11/08/09/0026233/Law-School-Amplifies-Critics-Through-SLAPP-Suit

That strategy, predictably, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect , has backfired, and has increased the attention given to the critics' expression of their views.

Now the other shoe has dropped. http://michiganradio.org/post/former-students-sue-cooley-law-school-misrepresentation

A Manhattan class-action law firm, has filed suit in Michigan federal court, http://www.kurzonstrauss.com/uploads/Thomas_M._Cooley_Complaint_11-cv-00831.pdf , on behalf of nearly every student to attend or graduate from Cooley for the last several years, accusing the law school of violating state consumer protection laws, fraud, and negligent misrepresentation.
