A senior professor at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Ore., has apologized for sending a political mailer that implied the school had endorsed his views. According to a statement released last week, the professor, James Huffman, said a recent mailer opposing an upcoming ballot measure was sent in an envelope with a return address that included the law school’s name both below his own name and above his home address. “It was not my intention to suggest to anyone that my views are those of the law school or that the law school was in any way responsible for the preparation or mailing of the letter,” Huffman said in his statement released last week. “The inclusion of the law school name in the return address was the result of a miscommunication between me and those who prepared the envelopes.” Huffman did not return calls. Huffman, the former dean of Lewis & Clark Law School, has been the chairman of the executive committee of the Federalist Society’s environment and property rights practice group. In recent months, he has been speaking out against Measure 49, a ballot initiative in Oregon backed by environmentalists that would limit development. Opponents have said the measure would encroach on private property rights. Last week, Lewis & Clark Law School Dean Robert Klonoff issued a statement emphasizing that “Lewis & Clark does not take a position on any ballot measure.”
