Update on libel lawsuit: MCM brief/affidavit in response to colleagues’ motion to dismiss

Friends, here are the documents my lawyer filed on Tuesday, in response to my colleagues’ motion to dismiss, arguing that (a) their charges are not libelous, because they are essentially true; (b) it was not they, but I, who publicized this matter; and (c) they did not mean to have me fired.

I’m sending this not just to bring you up to date on this particular case, and thereby set the record straight about it (once again), but, as well, because I think my affidavit makes important points about how propaganda works, and constitutes a powerful statement in defense of academic freedom, and—even more importantly—on what it means to be a teacher.

Thank you, as ever, for your ongoing support.
