Lawsuit Update:  March 2009

As you all know, on November 18, 2008, faced with the specter of a Board that continues to reject parity and an Association of Alumni executive committee that has rendered itself powerless by giving up its own lawsuit, a representative group of individual alumni filed suit in the Grafton County Superior Court to enforce the 1891 agreement, to restore parity, and to ensure the preservation of the governance model that has placed the College in the forefront of American educational institutions.

On February 2, 2009, the trustees responded. Now we wait for a trial date to be set or wiser heads to prevail.

See these filings on the Hanover Institute’s website.

The Hanover Institute will commit its strength and resources to insuring that this disgraceful self-dealing by the Dartmouth College board of trustees will not stand. We believe that broad alumni involvement is good for Dartmouth, and that for the greater good of her future we must restore their full franchise in charting her course. This is our main focus, the main battle on which we will spend our resources.
