In one of those rare convergences of synchronicity, Public Good operatives in the Bay Area and Puget Sound are in the midst of closing files on cases against institutions of higher education this month. Perry Mills versus Western Washington University (WWU), and SEIU versus New College of California, both stem from abuses of power and money-laundering.

In yesterday's ruling in the Washington Appeals Court, Professor Mills was awarded attorney's fees for being railroaded behind closed doors after whistle-blowing about financial irregularities at WWU. In December, SEIU was awarded attorney's fees against New College, but resolution of back wages and benefits remains undetermined for the now closed private college in San Francisco.

Public Good case managers are looking forward to a little time off.
