John Campbell the Discovery Institute and the Dover School District

As I wrote in Can North Mason Trust School Board Candidate John Campbell, John Campbell and the Discovery Institute were involved in the Dover School Board case. Their explanation of why Mr. Campbell didn't testify are quite different.

John Campbell Says

In his letter to the editor, John Campbell wrote:

When it became clear that the board was mandating a statement to be read by teachers (a violation of their academic freedom) and then by administrators (an equal violation of the integrity of their position) I strongly dissented and was fired by the Thomas Moore Law Center (TMLC)

The Discovery Institute - CSC Says

In "Setting the Record Straight about Discovery Institute's Role in the Dover School District Case" the Discovery Institute responds to criticism for the non-participation of Discovery Institute Fellows Stephen Meyer, William Dembski, and John Angus Campbell as expert witnesses with the this statement:

Meyer, Dembski and Campbell were all willing to testify as expert witnesses. They simply requested that they have their own counsel present at their depositions in order to protect their rights.
