Brian Leiter is the director of The University of Chicago's Center for Law, Philosophy & Human Values, and says the alumni enrolled at Widener during a time when many other law schools were representing data in a manner that wasn't as forthcoming.

He says the alumni will have to prove they received direct harm from their reliance on the statistics.
