Here's an update on that story, by the way: New poll shows more Iowans plan to vote against Wiggins' retention
Now, there's another big news story going on in right here at the law school. There's a federal case between Teresa Wagner, a part-time writing adviser at the law school, and the old dean of the law school, Carolyn Jones. Wagner applied for a full-time instructor position, but was denied the job. She claims it's because of the law school's anti-conservative bias.
Verdict could alter hiring in higher education
It's a really interesting story.
Anyway, the verdict was expected to come this week. So, being the cartoonist who goes above and beyond, I provided The Daily Iowan two cartoons: one if Wagner wins, and another if Wagner loses.
But I didn't draw one specifically for a mistrial!
Judge calls mistrial in conservative's lawsuit claiming liberal bias in hiring at U. Iowa law
I found out about the mistrial at about 6 p.m. yesterday, which was too late to draw a new cartoon. But I did email the opinion editor to suggest that my "If Wagner loses" cartoon could still work. I never heard back from him, and this morning I found the judicial retention cartoon instead.
But, lucky for you blog followers, you can see both of my Wagner v. Jones cartoons right here!
