U. of Baltimore President Disputes Ousted Dean

August 2, 2011

Robert L. Bogomolny, president of the University of Baltimore, on Monday issued a memo in which he disputed the claims of Phillip Closius, who was ousted last week as law dean, The Baltimore Sun reported. Closius attracted considerable attention when he told law school colleagues that the university was taking tuition money from the law school to support other parts of the university. Bogomolny denied that charge and said that the fight over finances was not the reason for the dean's departure. Bogomolny said he had met with alumni and faculty members and that "the overwhelming conclusion was that a change in leadership was in the best interests" of the law school and the university.
