Dean Sanctioned for Submitting False Admissions Data

Via Legal Ethics Forum comes news that former Villanova Law School Dean Mark Sargent received a three-year suspension from the Massachusetts Bar for knowingly submitting false admissions data.  Former Illinois Law DeanAssistant Dean of Admissions Paul Pless was also reprimanded by the Washington State bar.

[Note: Errors to this post have been corrected.  Most significantly, as initially written the post suggested that Paul Pless was the Dean of Illinois, rather than a Dean, as in Assistant Dean of Admissions.  This distinction is significant as there is no evidence of which I'm aware that other members of the the then-administration at Illinois were aware data had been misrepresented.  I regret the error.]
