Not surprisingly, disbarred attorney's lawsuit against William and Mary was dismissed

Somehow, it appears that the College of William and Mary's student newspaper scooped everybody with a June 1 article covering the dismissal of George Leach's lawsuit against the College over the Wren Cross controversy. As we posted here, Leach lost his license to practice law several years ago. According to this article, Leach called the dismissal decision a "tragedy" but as The Flat Hat article noted, "Leach was absent at his scheduled May 22 hearing for the case." The judge stated that Leach "'utterly failed to demonstrate' that he had standing to bring the suit."
