Quotes

"Working with Legal Aid has continued to be a rewarding experience. In this case, the client truly benefited from having the resources of a private law firm at her disposal in negotiating with opposing counsel. She was, without question, entitled to the UI benefits in dispute. Having diligently found a new job after leaving her old one only because she had not been paid, as the ALJ previously found, our client’s experience should have been a textbook example of how the D C social safety net should operate. It is unfortunate we even had to get involved in this case, but I am gratified that we achieved justice in the most tangible way for our client" said Schwartz
"> Christian Adams at PJ Media has been covering the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division for years. PJ Media had to file a lawsuit to obtain the resumes of the lawyers Holder has brought into that group. According to Adams, it turned out that every one of his hires is a left-wing activist, and that some have histories of anti-police activity."
Scott quoted a previous PSU president who said, "For decades there was enthusiastic growth in higher education, but in recent years there has been confusion over goals, new limits, reduced support and an uncertain future...In education, as in America, there are too few deeply held commitments on which we can agree and there are too few sharply defined goals that guide our course. No wonder that higher education in America has suffered a nagging feeling that it was not at the vital center of the nation's work."
