3L Sues Law School for Forcing Him to Retake CivPro Class

A law student who failed Civil Procedure II has sued the Thomas Jefferson School of Law for making him retake the course before graduating.

The 24-page complaint is full of biting put-downs for the private, San Diego law school. Third-year law student Jackson Millikan exalts his academic and legal accomplishments while mercilessly bashing Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL). The complaint (attached below), includes these gems:

"TJSL operated an abysmally substandard legal writing program."

"Mr. Millikan was instructed by a young family law attorney, another adjunct professor, who would discuss basketball, his latest divorce case, and his favorite rock bands every day."

"During final exam in Business Associations, Mr. Millikan had to stand up and approach the proctor because the two large exam rooms full of students had been given the answer key instead of the exam."

"As rankings and public persona make abundantly clear, one cannot go much lower than TJSL."

The school apparently is holding firm on its requirement that all students, including Millikan, pass Civil Procedure II before graduating.
