UC-Irvine removes head from posterior, rehires Chemerinsky

According to today's news, UC-Irvine has recanted and rehired Erwin Chemerinsky. That's good news, at least for now. The real trick is whether UC-Irvine will honor the agreement that it made over the weekend:
Drake and Chemerinsky said in their statement, "Our new law school will be founded on the bedrock principle of academic freedom. The chancellor reiterated his lifelong, unqualified commitment to academic freedom, which extends to every faculty member, including deans and other senior administrators."

If UC-Irvine really means this, then the whole brouhaha was a "learning opportunity," as folks like to say. We'll all be watching.
