A university professor at the University of New Hampshire had his lawsuit thrown out by an appeals court after he sued everyone in sight over his treatment after going nutso over receiving a parking ticket. Read about it here.
Mr. Collins later sued the university, its provost, and a police officer, accusing them of false arrest, defamation, and violation of his due-process rights. A federal district court ruled summarily against him in 2010, and on Tuesday a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit affirmed the lower court’s decision. Mr. Collins continues to serve on the department’s faculty.
My biggest problem is the last sentence.
What is a cockle, anyway?
