I ran across this on Volokh, they're painting a really scary picture.

After reading the article, I think it's pretty clear that Albert Gonzalez is behind all of this.

Wow - that is absolutely awful. I really feel for the current students especially who are going to a school that could lose its accredidation - that could be career ruining  :(

Wow, I'm glad I didn't apply there but I feel bad for people who sent them a fee deposit and don't know if the school will be there when they graduate. At least 3L students can finish up, and maybe 2L but you can't transfer after 1L so later on those students will have to start law school ALL over again-probably with debt but maybe they will have a leg up on all the other 1L's.
Also, I didn't know he created and destroyed 2 other schools before. It's all looking downhill for Ave Maria

Moving or not, it sounds like, even after they get settled in Florida, they have an enormous amount of issues. I don't know if ANY law school has managed to lose its accreditation from the ABA, but it sounds like if anyone can do it, it will be Ava Maria.

Well I dont think it will be re-accredited if that makes sense. They are supposed to get aba approval before they made the decision but it didn't seem like they cared. Ave Maria would somewhat be a new school from what I understand- like John Marshall Atlanta vs. John Marshall Chicago even though Ava Maria would no longer be in Michigan

Does anyone have a link to the "ITT we talk about how Ave Maria is up-and-coming" thread?
