So Mann may be going back to UVA. I wonder if that gives him some special ownership over his emails?

We all know people like this... They get in way over their heads, then get "promoted out" their employers will never slag them, will even give them top references, just to hopefully see them leave without severance or a bogus wrongful dismissal suit.
The email list should reveal Michael Mann to the world - a not very bright bumpkin, who had some time in the sun, but whose days are finally over.
