A federal judge has chided Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School for creating its own public-relations problems and has denied its bid to block the American Bar Association from posting a noncompliance letter about the school’s admissions practices.

Judge Arthur Tarnow, in dismissing Cooley’s motion for a temporary restraining order against the ABA, said the school made the bed it claimed to be lying in.

“Cooley’s decision to institute, and proceed with, this action is the primary cause for the reputational harm alleged,” wrote Tarnow, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, in the Tuesday decision. “Over the past few weeks, the letter and information about this lawsuit have been widely disseminated in the public sphere.”
