Des Moines Register is a Gannett paper, link only:
The case of Teresa Wagner, who was denied a faculty position at the University of Iowa because of her prolife views.
“”U. Iowa law prof says school retaliated against him for testifying at conservative’s trial”
IOWA CITY, Iowa A University of Iowa law professor who testified on behalf of a conservative colleague alleging she wasn’t hired because of her conservative viewpoints says the school is retaliating by falsely suggesting he was under investigation for sexual misconduct.
Mark Osiel, a 20-year veteran of the university, testified Tuesday at the federal trial of law school writing center employee Teresa Wagner, a Republican who says she was repeatedly passed over for teaching jobs because of her conservative views and activism...””
As an Iowa law grad, I sadly am not surprised by this case.
It will be interesting to see if what happens. Since this is in Iowa City, the Jury may decide to hang her (IC is very liberal).

But, obviously, I hope she wins. It’s about time someone put a chink in academia’s armor.
Interesting. Would have loved to be on the jury.
