College Fix: An applicant to the Duke University School of Law is suing the university after being denied admittance.
Edward Thomas Kennedy was rejected because he did not take the Law School Admittance Test, or LSAT. He claims the test is “junk science.”
The Duke Endowment and the Board of Trustees, the president of the Duke Endowment, and Duke President Vincent Price are also named in Kennedy’s lawsuit.
The Chronicle reports Kennedy has sued other schools that rejected his applications, as well as the Law School Admissions Counsel, the Association of American Law Schools, and the US Secretary of Education, among others.
Michael Schoenfeld, Duke vice president for public affairs and government relations, said Kennedy’s allegations “are not supported by the law or the facts,” and that the university will seek to have the suit dismissed. more here
