Student Reaction

So now that the AU students have woken up and are starting to hear about the article from the Post...

One theory is that the BOT is leaking that number so that way they look like good guys when they announce severance will actually only be 2 million or the original package that we thought we were giving him. The problem is, I don't think that's going to happen. From what I've heard, Ladner was not negotiating... he was just asking for insane amounts until they gave it to him.

AU shouldn't be afraid of litigation with Ladner. The Board even voted that the '97 contract wasn't valid. It was a narrow vote, but even with the Ad Hoc committee in control now, it still happened. We should not be giving this man oodles of money.

And this news story is hitting during Family and Alumni weekend over at AU. Wonder if the parents will finally get wind of what's going on.
