After suing the American Bar Association's Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar over a noncompliance letter made public, Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School has dropped the lawsuit, which alleged Higher Education Act and common law due process violations, The ABA Journal reports. “The circumstances that led to the litigation have been largely resolved and there was simply no point in continuing. Importantly, we have had very cordial communication with representatives from the ABA Council on Legal Education and Admission to the Bar. WMU-Cooley is committed to pursuing a collaborative approach in working with the Council, to continue meeting ABA standards,” the school's interim president, Jeff Martlew, said in a statement.
