A couple of quick clarifications. The appeals court case Levy attended had nothing to do with the alleged claim that she said the chancellor search was a sham. So the person suggesting that we check the court records is misinformed; the chancellor search would not have even come up in the legal proceedings. As such, the "perjury" charge is beyond silly. Also, I've known Levy for well over a decade. Even if she were on the search committee -- which she's not, so she could not form an opinion on the search, one way or the other -- she would never have said such a thing. She is a person of the highest integrity and discretion. I would not go so far as to say that the "reporter" that claimed Levy said such things was lying ("journalists" trying to make a reputation for themselves so as to move on to a bigger market would, of course, never do such a thing!); but, Levy's typically generous assessment that "the reporter misunderstood, perhaps" is as close to the truth as we're going to get, here. Those of you that commented that the problem here is journalistic integrity are on the mark.
