Both sides prepare for legal battle

Preparations for a legal battle over the Dartmouth Board of Trustees' right to diminish alumni representation on the Board are in advanced stages, as lawyers on both sides are primed and ready for at least one near-certain lawsuit that will ensue if the Board votes to change its structure at its meeting this weekend. The Association of Alumni's executive committee has issued the College a request to preserve documents related to the Board's decision for purposes of discovery and has retained Washington-based law firm Williams & Connolly, according the Association Second Vice President Frank Gado '58. The Board currently consists of as many alumni-elected trustees as Board-selected charter trustees.

Trips down to the river are replaced by late-night study sessions; as finals approach, a stint at the library is no longer a Wednesday-evening taboo.
