As the Chronicle for Higher Education reported:

“Two tenured professors at the William Mitchell College of Law have sued the college, claiming it amended its tenure policy so it would be able to cut more positions as part of a merger that is in process. The Star Tribune reports that the complaint by Carl Moy and John Radsan asks for the changes to the policy to be declared a breach of contract.”

“According to the complaint, the college’s administration could not get enough faculty members to volunteer to retire in preparation for its merger with Hamline University School of Law. So, the complaint states, the college sought to make it easier to fire tenured professors.”
