THE NEWS

  • Who will be the next Yale College Council president? An overlooked clause in the YCC’s constitution threw the presidential race to a runoff, which concludes tonight. Check back tonight to see who won.
  • In the past, University President Richard Levin said he would remain in office at least until the conclusion of the Yale Tomorrow fundraising campaign, which ended last June. When students return to campus this fall, University Secretary Linda Lorimer will be its new “Vice President.” Could Lorimer will continue to rise up within the University’s administration? Tapley Stephenson reports.
  • After more than six months, Occupy New Haven may finally leave the Green following Tuesday decisions by a federal appeals court and a state housing court. A panel of three judges at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld District Court Judge Mark Kravtiz’s ruling that the city could legally remove protesters from the Green after a Tuesday morning court hearing. After an appeal to a state housing court was rejected Tuesday afternoon, the city is free to resume its eviction of Occupy New Haven
