ATH: Chris Gilbert in the news

Chris Gilbert gets a say in the Duke lacrosse case!

A lawsuit, if filed, could focus on the university's internal policies, said Chris Gilbert, an education law attorney at Bracewell and Guiliani in Houston, who is not involved in this case. University policy, for example, says that Duke "does not discriminate on the basis … of any other university program or activity."

Gilbert said that it could be difficult for families to show that the university broke the law by not doing enough to protect their children and that the professors' statements could be protected by the First Amendment.
