Indiana Law Prof Ian Samuel resigns after misconduct probe

    Tony Mauro writes in The National Law Journal, "Ian Samuel, an Indiana University Maurer School of Law associate professor whose career was halted by a Title IX misconduct investigation last December, announced Friday he has resigned from his position.

    Samuel, a former law clerk to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, was co-host of First Mondays, a now-defunct popular podcast about the high court. He also led a successful effort to dissuade law firms from forcing arbitration clauses on summer associates. Before teaching at Indiana, he was an associate at Jones Day and a lecturer at Harvard Law School.

    “I’m choosing to forgo procedural rights that might (though I doubt it) preserve my job if I fought to the Pyrrhic end, because the academic year is over and it’s time for this process to be over, too,” Samuel said in a letter to the university’s provost that Samuel posted on Twitter."
