FAMU law prof says complaint sigs forged?



Can FAMU legal writing professor Victoria Dawson, who was the subject of written complaints from law students in the spring (see St. Petersburg Times story here and Gradebook post here), really be alleging that other faculty members forged some of the signatures on those complaints?

It sounds far-fetched, but sources tell the Gradebook it's true.

FAMU officials aren't exactly quashing the allegation, either: "In light of the fact that this matter involves issues re Professor Dawson’s tenure and promotion, the information requested is confidential," FAMU general counsel Avery McKnight writes in an e-mail to the Gradebook.
