We've just received word that the UC Hastings Board of Directors is holding an emergency meeting regarding Dean/Chancellor Nell Newton's employment at 4pm. That is literally all we know, but it sounds like possibly intense news.
You can check the .pdf of the board's announcement here, and we'll bring you news on what's going down as soon as we have it.
Newton, pictured, returned home to San Francisco in 2005 to take the helm at Hastings after serving as University of Connecticut School of Law's dean.
UPDATE: As of the end of the meeting on Friday evening, Newton's employment status has not changed, according to current chair of the board James Mahoney.
