Some sanity in the Ivy League?
According to the Washington Examiner:
Yale University fired a professor after she made remarks about former President Donald Trump’s mental health, a recently filed lawsuit reveals.
The lawsuit, filed against the Ivy League school by psychiatrist Bandy Lee, alleges that her firing last year was an “unlawful termination … due to her exercise of free speech about the dangers of Donald Trump’s presidency.” Lee’s complaint came after a Jan. 2020 tweet in which she declared that “just about all” of Trump’s followers suffer from a “shared psychosis.”
Lee added that Alan Dershowitz, one of Trump’s top legal advisers at the time, had “wholly taken on Trump’s symptoms by contagion.” Dershowitz responded by asking Yale to investigate Lee for a violation of the ethics rules of the American Psychiatric Association. Dershowitz contended that because Lee had never met him, she was unable to evaluate his mental health.
Dershowitz, according to court filings, wrote that the psychiatrist had “publicly ‘diagnosed’ me as ‘psychotic,’ based on my legal and political views, and without ever examining or even meeting me.”
Lee later responded that she would not “cower” or “compromise” on her opinions. Lee was fired several months later, following a Yale investigation.
