Diagnosis: Implausible

Episode 51

 The USLawEssentials Law & Language podcast continues its What’s New in the Legal News Series as Stephen Horowitz and Daniel Edelson discuss a recent decision by a federal court to dismiss the lawsuit of a former Yale University professor who sued the University after she lost her faculty position.  Among other things, she alleged that her contract with the University prohibited her employer from firing her for Tweets in which she appeared to diagnose former President Trump and others with a mental illness.

This episode discusses pleading standards in the US federal courts and the basis to dismiss a lawsuit with prejudice pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6)
