Dean Harold Hongju Koh Statement To YLS Community on Malicious Website Postings
To: The Yale Law School Community
From: Dean Harold Hongju Koh
Date: March 8, 2007
"On March 7, The Washington Post ran a story about several of our students who have been personally targeted on an internet message board. While this message board purports to be about law school and law school admissions, it contains numerous sexist, racist, homophobic and other derogatory comments by anonymous posters. Some of these comments include the names and personal information of our students and other individuals, along with many false and hurtful assertions.
"The Law School and the University are deeply concerned about this situation and have been working on a variety of fronts to try to assist our own students and others affected by the postings on this website.
"Such anonymous, personal attacks on individuals are despicable. These malicious attacks, as well as racist, sexist, and homophobic speech, have no place in the Yale Law School community. Those who make these hurtful statements injure us all. We must stand together in speaking out against these indecent and intolerant attacks on our students, and, wherever possible, take action to stop these attacks."
