Ex-Duquesne U. law dean to head Texas law school

The Associated Press

March 24, 2009

PITTSBURGH The man who was ousted as dean of Duquesne University law school in Pittsburgh will take over as head of a Texas law school on Aug. 1.

Sixty-year-old Don Guter (GOO'-ter) says he's heading to the South Texas College of Law in Houston. The school was founded in 1923 and is not affiliated with any college or university. Its enrollment is about 1,200.

Guter has said he was forced to resign in December because of a personality dispute with Duquesne President Charles Dougherty (DOK'-er-tee). But the school says Guter didn't meet unspecified expectations since he was named dean in 2005.

Guter's ouster had prompted protests from Duquesne students and alumni in the western Pennsylvania legal community.
