Former Dean Lawrence Mitchell

[N]one of us really know the facts of what happened. There’s an overall sense of not knowing what happened, not knowing who may be in the right, not wanting to make any really strong statements without having that kind of knowledge. We’re law professors — we want to let the justice system play out and hopefully to get to the bottom of this.

– Case Western Professor Cassandra Robertson, discussing the tumultuous exit of Dean Lawrence Mitchell in a comprehensive account of Mitchell’s rise and fall on the shores of Lake Erie entitled Sex, Politics and Revenge, by Doug Brown of The Scene.

(A tawdry tidbit about the former dean engaging in PDA, after the jump.)

Here’s one allegation from Doug Brown’s lengthy article:

[A] female law student remembers bumping into Mitchell with a young girl at a Cleveland Heights grocery store near campus: “I was like, ‘Oh, cute he’s with his daughter.’ But then he starts making out with her in the meat section.”

So the dean was making out with a student in the meat department. Yeah, that’s what she said.
