After law dean resigns, college president follows suit

University of Wyoming president Bob Sternberg has resigned after the resignations of five administrators and three deans at the school, including law dean Stephen Easton.

Sternberg told the Casper Star Tribune last week that he resigned because he felt he no longer had the support of college trustees. “If one does not feel the complete confidence of the board, then the honorable thing to do is to resign, which I did,” he said. Sternberg had held the job for only 137 days.

Easton had said in a widely distributed Oct. 31 email that he resigned because of a lack of “meaningful consultation” in recent important decisions affecting the law school, including the formation of a task force to provide input on the law school.
