Ex-dean takes on the student paper 

The St. Cloud Times reports that former dean Dick Lewis has decided to go back to suing the campus newspaper that libeled him. Obviously there are no deep pockets, and the students who wrote or supervised the article are gone. The faculty advisor remains, but he would not lose money from this. But that's not the point. As I said then, if he can show the campus paper libeled him, and then show that the libel was part of the reason he was fired later, it strengthens his eventual discrimination case against the university.
