George Mason University, named after notorious Virginia slave owner George Mason, is honoring Antonin Scalia by naming their law school in his memory.
Did the University do this out of their high regard for the late Supreme Court Justice? Nah. The Charles Koch Foundation and another donor ponied up $30 million, in return for which the University agreed to change their law school’s name. What I want to know is how much we’d have to pay GMU to get them to change the name to The Bite Me School of Law?
You can read the Dean’s letter about the name, the funding, etc.
