The smell of Downy's unrine?  Lol!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Joe, I'm sure you figured out that A.J. is just trolling LSD.  Don't waste your time with him.

A.J., man, I mean nerd- come on I used the mom joke back in high school.  Get out of high school man. You're done with that.  I understand you have unresolved issues from then but wake up and smell Downy's urine!!  It's so over.

She paid me.  She started crying and telling me how "Gilley never gives it to me like that".  "OOOOH it HURTTTTTTTTS". "But dont stop"  She is such a slut.





coooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey

No offense A.J., but you sound like a loser.  I think Joe's right- no girl would date you.

General Board / Re: SC Justice Nomination

I just wish Bush didn't have to the nominating again. :-\

What are everyone's thoughts of President Bush's recent statement nominating Roberts not only as a new justice but as the Chief Justice?

Sure Roberts clerked for Renquist but what about the other justices?

I think that the court would be exciting with Scalia or Thomas as Chief Justice.

Why is this so hard for you people to believe? Where are you from?

I have had a few professors who will call on students 2 classes in a row.  They sometimes do this to make sure a student doesn't relax after getting called on.  They know just like everyone else that sometimes after getting called on a student feels like they don't need to read, just like you probably did, and calling on someone 2 times in a row early on can help stop this.  For this reason I have no sympathy for getting claled on and grilled 2 classes in a row. 

As for the other stuff - if it is true and I tend to believe it is not - you should definitely talk to someone and get it taken care of.

Classes just started for a majority of the students if I'm not mistaken. What material would she need help with at this point in the early semester?

She should of gone to lunch w/him???  You sound so f*n retarded. 

WTF? Sexual Harrassment? For all you know he wants to help you out with the class material. I can't believe all the alarmist bull on this thread. You should have gone to lunch with him. The best move to make now is to apologize for turning down the first time and ask him if you can reschedule now. If he starts putting the moves on you at that meeting, THEN you have something to discuss with the dean. Or not.

Yeah, that's a real lawyerly like comment. ::)

yeah, nice flame

And why, pray tell, are you so convinced that it is a flame, or bull?  You weren't there, and neither was I; we didn't hear the actual words said, didn't perceive the tone of the lunch proposal, weren't there to judge how bad the alleged grilling in class was or whether it had a nasty or retaliatory air about it.  But the OP seemed to have been very uncomfortable with the whole thing, so uncomfortable, that she thought to solicit advice from fellow law students around the country.  Sexual harassment, or allegations thereof, or behavior that comes close to it, is not a joke and is not something you can just lightly dismiss.

As for the OP, my advice would be to go to the Dean (maybe Dean of Students if you don't want to march into the Dean of the Law School's Office immediately), but ONLY IF the requests for lunch continue, notwithstanding your indications that you're too busy or uninterested, and/or if you notice the treatment in class getting progressively worse.  If the requests continue despite your repeated refusals, ask him, firmly, to please not ask you again.  If it still continues, you might then consider going over his head.

STFU

1- I would be feeling the same way she is.  You think being called on twice in one week for the entire class period is normal? How so giraffe lady?

2- Since classes just started, don't you think it's odd that a professor is already asking her out to lunch when they haven't even gotten to know each other?

3- What if the lunch date escalated into something more? Also, don't give me this bs about blind grading.  If a professor wants to find out who a student is, he can.

4- It starts with lunch honey.

5- Why did he ask her again after she already said her schedule was busy or something like that? Don't you think it's odd that when she came to his office that he said it would help her situation if they went to lunch? I think that's an odd statement.

6- Um, hello?? Who's going to come out and say that "I want to sleep with you!"

I don't think she's sensitive at all.

Personally, I believe that the she was just a little too sensitive.
1). If you get grilled in class and are unprepared, it's not going to be fun. She's right--it's humiliating. But this is true regardless of gender. He was just doing his job.

2). Every girl has experienced an unfounded belief that some guy likes her when really he does not. It's happened to me, as I'm sure that it has happened to you. Sometimes ppl just misread signs. Especially when you go from undergrad where profs go to great lengths to distance themselves from the students to law school where they treat you as one of them.

3). If her school has blind grading, as I'm 97% sure it does, he knows that she knows that a lunch date has no effect on her grade.

4). A LUNCH DATE!?! If a guy likes you, he will ask you to DINNER, not lunch. Lunch is something that colleagues do.

5). I doubt that the professor would keep pushing someone who has already turned him down. It would appear that they are treading on thin ice and they could then be risking their job. Most sexual harrassment occurs in the grey area. E.g. the lunch was consensual but the sexual advances weren't.

6). If I am reading the OP correctly, the prof has never implied that a sexual relation would occur b/w the two of them. It's not like he is asking her out to eat oysters.

Again, I just think that she is just a little too sensitive and is not accustomed to the change in atmosphere from undergrad to law school. If the prof really wanted to date her, he would have made it clear that he was asking her on a formal date--not lunch.
