Willard College’s General Counsel of 25 Years Retires, Sues the College

Nathan Thurm

Dear President Cotton,

The news that former general counsel Hector Nancy initiated a massive law suit against his  former employer on behalf of over a dozen different plaintiff groups, literally minutes after signing the paperwork on his retirement and post-employment package leaves us utterly speechless. Based on what we see in the law suit, Nancy spent his entire career filing away every piece of dirt he could find about Willard College, including items where he was acting on our behalf. This is the largest set of class action suits ever directed at a college. These law suits include violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title IX, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (Superfund), the Federal Anti-Kickback Law and Regulatory Safe Harbors regulations, and the Money Laundering Control Act of 1986 (Public Law 99-570), to name just a few of the laws in question. In last few years, Nancy devoted most of his time to  organizing plaintiffs and used his own office and work-time to meet with individuals and groups, and to run focus groups in anticipation of this post-retirement law suit.

Cotton, you and Provost Pillow need to fix this and fix it quickly. He cannot be serious. This is just a set up and at this point, our best option is to pay him off. Do what you need to do.
