Well you have to wonder how many of the left-wing zealots who threatened to get him fired from his legal job actually followed through on that. If some of them made calls, especially if what they said was not true, maybe he'd have a cause of action against them, but tracking them down and finding out what was said is going to be next to impossible.

Exactly! The phone company could monitor the lines (either with people or computers with voice recognition software), so they shouldn't get any break.

They can't plead innocence, either, because everyone knows that lots of horrible things are said over the phone.

He has no cause of action. A law firm is entitled to refuse to hire a person associated with negative publicity and/or values inconsistent with the firm's values. For everyone around here trumpeting the cause of "free speech," I suggest you go back to your Con Law books for a refresher on how free speech jurisprudence applies to strictly state action, not to employment law in the private sector.

You are thinking entirely in terms of federal constitutional law. There might be a cause of action under the state constitution. Some states, like California, make it very very difficult for a PRIVATE employer to fire someone. Maybe PA is the same. It's worth a look though.

You are wrong. This isn't the Soviet Union. Private corporations are allowed to hire and fire employees according to their business interests, for any reason that is not expressly prohibited by state and federal law, which in most states includes race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Some jurisdictions also include sexual orientation. There are also issues pertaining to disabilities, age discrimination, military service, and pregnancy.

None of these issues apply to a person who is fired (or not-hired, or un-hired) because the employer doesn't like his public image or what it learns about his personal non-religion related values.

it's still state contract law. who knows whether they can rescind an offer, already accepted, on free speech grounds under the state constitution. i doubt it's a clear cut issue.

On April 11, just over a month after the WaPo story ran, DeWitt sent a letter to Ciolli stating that the firm had recently learned of the controversy involving AutoAdmit, in particular its “off-topic” message board, and that “the information we now have raises serious concerns about your joining our firm.”

DeWitt wrote that the content of the messages on the board are “antithetical” to the values of the firm and the “principles of collegiality and respect that members of the legal profession should observe in their dealings with other lawyers.” DeWitt pointed out that in an online letter to another blogger, Ciolli and his partner Jarret Cohen identified themselves as AutoAdmit’s administrators and defended its “free, uninhibited exchange of ideas.”

DeWitt continued: “We expect any lawyer affiliated with our firm, when presented with the kind of language exhibited on the message board, to reject it and to disavow any affiliation with it. You, instead, facilitated the expression and publication of such language. . . . ” He wrote, his resignation from the site was “too late to ameliorate our concerns.” He asked that Ciolli respond in writing.

"the information we have now" "the kind of language exhibited"... Edwards Angell have apparently never heard of Voltaire: Monsieur l'abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write.

Yes. Name a large law firm that wants to have clients question them about a new associate and his close association with a board known for racist and anti-semitic rhetoric?

It's not PC bullshit - it's a free market. GTO chose to make a stand, and that's his call, but in doing so he chose to lessen his value in the BIGLAW marketplace. He may well have raised it in some other areas, but not in the arena of large law firms. People who can't see otherwise need to get out in the real business world for a while. I can't believe this really surprises anyone.

Edit: and just to clarify, I think he might be a nice addition for a high profile litigation boutique looking to make a bit of a splash around defense of freedom of speech, but not for the risk averse large law firm - at least not at this point. Also, I don't think this should be a C&F ding since I don't recall GTO making any inflammatory post himself that I can recall. I'm sure they will make him squirm, but I think he should be able to acquit himself there.

I'm a big GTO supporter. I think he's done a lot of work for the site, and I think it's unfair how much flak he's caught over the various xoxo fiascos.

That said, I'm not really sure it's bullshit from the firm's perspective. First years are basically fungible units. Fair or not, GTO's name HAS been linked to controversy, that's undeniable. Better for the firm to avoid an associate whose name could be leveraged by shitheels like Leiter and Fertik to piss off firm clients.

Yeah

On a serious note, he is pretty screwed. Once one firm has published their disdain for GTO, other firms will not want to pick up the scraps.

I found that quite interesting also. I highly doubt that they were insincere in giving him one last chance, however. My read on the blog article about this is that GTO was reluctant to condemn the many negative things associated with xoxo that the firm was concerned about. He failed to say, "I think the treatment of Iravani was unfair and wrong. I think the racist and sexist remarks on the board are deplorable and disgusting." and he failed to say (because he could not credibly say), "I did everything I could to prevent these kinds of communications from being published and causing people harm."

This is not about "free speech" and frankly the "free speech" whiners on this board are pretty irritating to me--a strong advocate of the First Amendment. If you want to say whatever you want to say (or be responsible for maintaining a message board where everyone says whatever they want to say), by all means do so... just don't do it while simultaneously feeling entitlement to a six figured salary with a major corporation that functions in the business world. No one is entitled to jack shit in the business world. You earn it by playing the rules. And if you don't want to play by the rules, find another sandbox.

There's no mention of such condemnation in the WSJ post. If anything the WSJ says you "played down [your] ability to control content on the site". This tells me that the WSJ reporter also saw an inadequate degree of condemnation for offensive communications.

Was the WSJ reporting of your story unfair or inaccurate?

=====

Ciolli, in a letter dated April 16, recounted the history of AutoAdmit and his joining as education director to “develop educational content and publications” for the site, including a working paper on which law schools place the most graduates at elite law firms, well after the site was founded in 2004. He played down his ability to control content on the site. “While I was free to give input and act in an advisory manner–which I often did, with mixed results–Mr. [Jarret] Cohen always had final say over all rules and policies related to the message board,” and that Cohen “rarely granted” his requests to remove offensive material.

Ciolli added that he was “still in the process of assessing all the lessons to be learned from this incident,” including “the importance of good judgment and proceeding with caution,” values he would appreciate “to a greater extent than a typical first year associate.” He suggested deferring his start date at the firm by a year to “allow me time to develop a series of positive contributions to the legal community that would go a long way toward strengthening my reputation and allaying your concerns.”

Moderation just stimulates ppl to be more and more outrageous. Asshole posters with nothing to do could keep a flotilla of mods perpetually busy. The only cure is self-regulation.

like i said below, it rewards trolls...just think about it

in another message board--for shits and giggles, let's say 2+2--there are so many subforums that when you post a racist, shock post most people on the board wont see it. On xo, everything is on one page, so you get maximum pwnage per shock post. With everything mixed--and don't get me wrong, i like the idea--the site can quickly become a cesspool where important posts are quickly lost

I think to be fair, he was in a pretty shitty situation, especially for a 2L. Probably didn't anticipate getting into this kind of mess just by moderating a board, and wound up getting in over his head. I think some of the policies were poorly thought out and there was a good deal of inconsistency, but he also put a lot of work into the place and I think his motivations were in the right place.

He got what he deserved. I wouldn't want to work with someone who tacitly endorsed the racist, sexist, and homophobic remarks on this board. I don’t know how he thought he was going to be able to keep up the whole “its free speech” argument forever. Ultimately you are responsible both for what you say and what you allow by your non-action. Once he supposedly realized that Cohen would not be willing to take down completely ridiculous stuff, he should have resigned. (If in fact he was actually concerned about the things being posted. It looks like he wasn’t.) That he was unwillingly to resign a long time ago speaks volumes about his character and his lack of judgment.

I loved this baord. It's gotten me from the lsat to graduation from LS with tremendous amounts of info. but in the last year or so, it's gone downhill. People that complained were right. there was an opportunity to do something and he didn't do it.

i agree with all of this. it's hard to see how GTO didn't see this as a possible result of a no-moderation policy. it's been clear for quite some time that limited moderation was needed, and the T14 fiasco and media shitstorm that followed it made that fact crystal clear. it's unfortunate. the no-moderation policy has not only led to actual IRL harm, but has also ruined much of this board.

I feel bad for GTO but the kind of stuff he condoned and facilitated here is just not acceptable in civilized society. It's one thing to act as a conduit for free speech where people can spam the word 'nigger' all day long. As reprehensible as that is, at least you can give bullshit justifications about free speech. but when people's lives/job prospects/etc. are being personally effected and threats of rape and whatnot are being made.... it's over.

BTW, there is no doubt that reputation defender got in touch with GTO's firm and told them that they would raise a stink if the firm didn't terminate GTO.

I doubt C&F will be a problem. He hasn't done anything particularly egregious, particularly by C&F standards. People routinely get admitted with DUIs or felony arrests, I don't see how this is any worse or more immoral.

The bigger issue is whether any private firm will be willing to take a flier on GTO at this point -- with so many potential attorneys graduating from top schools every year, I'm not sure I see the incentive to hire someone with no experience and such a controversial reputation.

they went after him because they have leverage over him (in the form of risk-averse employers and the bar), and he could have removed the offensive posts if he wanted to. maybe he didn't have some mythical "authority," but it's not like rachmiel wouldn't listen if he said, "take down this post or i'll never be able to get a job."

Supernanny herself couldn't have come up with a more just and appropriate consequence. This board was publicly humiliating people in the legal community, and he chose not to stop it. Now he's being publicly humiliated in the legal community. He said that when you put your info out there on the web, it's your own fault if people use it to hurt you. Now people are using the info he put on the web to hurt him, so according to him, that's his own fault.

Sounds like he's getting back exactly what he gave. I don't know why so many posters pity him for this.

A few thoughts:

He needs to play the victim thing up even more. He is already a batshit crazy conservative, so maybe he can get a staff job at somewhere such as the Heritage Foundation or the Federalist Society.

Second, he needed to offer to shut down the board immediately in response to the letter (regardless of whether he could have).

Third, maybe he can write a book. "How liberals and political correctness ruined my life." Do the talkshow circuit, collect cash.

GTO, do you have any regrets? if so, what are they? do you realize that you would've ended up just fine if you'd stopped the character assassination/googlebombing of people on here? do you recognize that blaming rachmiel for the board administration was/is counterproductive?

the racism, sexism, antisemitism, etc. wouldn't have attracted all this attention if there weren't individuals who felt very wronged by the board. maybe there was no libel; maybe these people brought it on themselves by putting pictures on the internet. but these people were pissed off, got a lot of attention trained on you, and now--let's be frank about it--your legal career is over before it started.

for the first time autoadmit has really upended your life. has this changed your outlook at all?

Dude, have you ever READ this board?

Pretending ignorance of posts about rape, when there are entire threads decicated to rape (as "flame" or not), undermines your credibility completely.

Also, in a genius move, some of those rape threads specifically name, in the TITLE, a prominent law student who has her own blog and writes for various internet publications. Hard to keep that under wraps.

Link to an xoxo page WITHOUT a rape thread, please.

The idiotic euphemism "Chief Education Officer" probably did more to obscure his limited control over content than to confirm that limited control, which I gather is somewhat true. Live by puffery, die by puffery.

As for the firm, they basically decided they don't like him, which is their entitlement. that same dislike would have been there had the offer not been revoked.

I suspect it might have been different if there weren't contrasts like GTO racing around to delete every Madame Cunt post critical of him, and they turning into a free expression absolutist when there were requests to delete posts lots of people actually cared about.

Much of his current circumstance can be traced back to moments of vivid disngenuousness.

Right... how can GTO say that his refusal to delete those disgusting threads stemmed from a respect for free speech when he constantly deleted posts by Madame Cunt and Lorelei, deleted threads outting posters he likes, and even deleted totally inoffensive, non-outting threads if someone he liked asked him nicely? I really just don't get why he wanted to leave those threads up.

GTO made some bad decisions which ultimately caught up to him in the real world. Xoxo is a cesspool where many behave in a manner without regard to consequences whereas in the real world, associating with disreputable entities will have consequences which GTO ultimately found out.

GTO showed very poor judgement and business sense. Attaching his real name to this site was just plain dumb. Maybe he had good intentions in involving himself in the Auto Admit Studies portion of the board but he poorly judged what he was getting involved with in an overall sense. He should have realized he was attaching his name & reputation to the website as a WHOLE. Anyone with solid judgement figures this out. He should have realized how outside entities may view his involvement with this site. He should have realized two years ago as a 1L then moved on like many people on this board have once they realized how high the stakes are in terms of what they may lose by staying on this board. GTO played with fire way too long. I feel bad that he lost his job but he put himself in this situation. The real world/business world is a lot less forgiving than xoxo...GTO was made the poster child for how this site can screw up someone's future. It's pretty ironic that for all the nonsense that has transpired here unchecked over the years, it is one of the boards admins that suffered arguably the worst fate of all.
