S. Walter Richey Professor of Corporate Law

Prof. Richard Painter Quoted by Pro Publica and New York Times about Private School Tuition for the Grandnephew of Justice Clarence Thomas

Professor Richard Painter was interviewed in Pro Publica in an article covering the significance of the news that Justice Clarence Thomas enrolled his grandnephew in a private school, which was paid for by Harlan Crow, a billionaire real estate magnate. The tuition did not appear in Justice Clarence Thomas' disclosure filing. Professor Painter commented, “This is way outside the norm. This is way in excess of anything I’ve seen."
