Brandeis University May Sue Harpers Magazine

According to the New England Journal of Aesthetic Research,

Brandeis University is contemplating suing Harper’s Magazine for slander or defamation for the article “Voodoo Academics: Brandeis University’s hard lesson in the real economy” in the magazine’s November issue[.]

Brandeis President Jehuda Reinharz wrote in an e-mail: “We recognize that the legal process for slander/defamation is an arduous task and one that is difficult to prove; however, we feel that some affirmative course of action must be taken to protect the reputation of Brandeis given that this article is likely to have circulation on the Internet far beyond the circulation numbers of Harper’s.”
