Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, is stepping down as dean of the Liberty University School of Law, presumably so he can continue his utter incompetence in other places. No word on whether he is also leaving Liberty Counsel, which is affiliated with the law school but is a separate organization.
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell announced the resignation of Liberty University School of Law Dean Mathew Staver on Monday during the university’s All-Faculty Meeting, honoring him for his more than eight years of service.
Falwell said it was by Staver’s leading that the law school was established in 2004, calling it a “big undertaking and bold commitment” for the university to make after struggling financially for many years.“Mat was the one who pushed hard and convinced us it was the right thing to do,” Falwell said.
He congratulated Staver for steering the law school through its first ABA accreditation approval process (no other university has obtained ABA provisional status in a shorter period of time) and for helping the university select a founding dean before Staver himself took on the position in 2006.
“We officially thank you for all you’ve done to make Liberty University School of Law successful,” Falwell told Staver.
Now if there is a god and he truly loves me, Staver will be forming a new law form with Larry Klayman.
