Liberty Employees Warned: Don’t Speak With Falwell

The Lynchburg News & Advance reports:

Liberty University’s top lawyer instructed staff members to refrain from communicating with ousted former president Jerry Falwell Jr., who he warned had placed “uncomfortable” calls to various employees in the days following his resignation.

In an email obtained by The News & Advance, David Corry, Liberty’s general counsel, informed employees they are barred from providing information about the school, taking orders, performing tasks or offering favors for Falwell while on university time.

Corry suggested any ongoing interactions could create the perception Falwell still is assisting in managing the university. “This impression is not well received by our supporters who do not want Mr. Falwell to be running Liberty University behind the scenes,” Corry wrote.
