Meanwhile, some kindly soul has posted the transcript of what must be one of the Truly Weird Depositions of All Time, the testimony of Ave Maria Board Chairman (and general supremo) Tom Monaghan in a lawsuit brought by three former Ave Maria professors. The professors allege that they were fired in retaliation for reporting illegal conduct by Monaghan, and for refusing to acquiesce to what they say were Monaghan's attempts to make the Board move the school from Michigan to Florida — to property he himself owns.
