so even if how they portrayed the law is correct, why would a Louisiana state law need to be adhered to in Mississippi or Connecticut?
it used to be or may still be illegal to hammer nails in Michigan after ten pm, can anyone at the Bristol office not do that either then?
That response did not address my point at all. You're not winning the argument about "Louisiana" especially not with that type of completely flopped response. It has nothing to do with MT. I said, if it were illegal and another institution wanted to challenge it, then they could and as your rambling responses indicate, probably would if they felt as strongly as you do. The fact is, no one has done so and thus the folks in Lafayette will continue to use that branding and do so until they are challenged on it (if they can even be challenged to begin with). I haven't been fed anything by the Cajuns. I have done my own research. You seem to hold a major grudge and I think you may be a little too sensitive on this issue. I am simply stating the facts. Legally, if anyone could challenge it and wanted to do so, why wouldn't they have done so yet? That's all I'm asking and that is what you have failed to answer.
Just too bad that the mods, like our 'friend' cheifsfan and skullymagoo don't grew some nads and do the same thing on our board.
1. The rule does not address or prohibit ANYONE, including the school, from using 'Louisiana' as a stand alone reference. Even the former and incoming ULS presidents have confirmed this. The 'turds may WANT it to be a law, but it is not, so it therefore cannot be considered 'illegal' by any stretch of the imagination. Period.
2. The law that prohibits the usage of 'UL' is so poorly written it isn't worth the toilet paper it was written on, and is unenforceable. Even a 'lawyer' poster on the 'turd board agreed:
"After having read the Policy it is rather ambiguous legally. Firs it says that institutions "should" adhere to the policy not "shall". But then it specifically says that the use of the "University of Louisiana" without the "at ..." is prohibited, but this is part of the policy that "should" be adhered to. This may be double talk to laymen but to a judge it isn't. There is a world of difference between "should" and"shall".
The Policy says the the Act specifically also "authorized the Board of Trustees and Board of Regents to approve the change of name of any university within the System to the "University of Louisiana at (its geographic location)" provided no less than two institutions make a request for and are approved to change the institutional names.
Since the act left it up to the Boards to approve the name changes, unless you guys can find anything else in the Statute, then only the Boards can enforce the policy."
Again....not that any of these facts will stop them being the embiciles that's they are. Just makes me that much happier for the recent wins, including the smack down on the cusa board.
good job, LaCajunsFan! i appreciate the documentation.
