A year ago today the lawyer for the college told me that the college and I are in “settlement talks”. The settlement talks never ended, but never progressed. The college changed lawyers and the new lawyer seemed not to know what was going on, or took his orders from someplace else. All I’ve seen is more retaliation and more retaliation.
Usually when people are in settlement talks, they are trying to solve a dispute. Holy Cross did not make that effort. I wonder sometimes if the problems I am experiencing are internal to Holy Cross, and not about me at all. I wonder if the administration of Holy Cross really doesn’t know how to behave, how to solve problems.
