Puente Would Settle $1,000,000 Griswold Law Suit Out of Court
J. Irizarry Y. Puente, a Washington lawyer suing Dean Griswold and the University for $1,000,000, stated yesterday that he is willing to settle his case out of court.
"Although the suit was field last week," he said, "my attorney will be willing to discuss the matter in a friendly light with anyone from the University. I have offered to discuss the matter in Cambridge with the Dean, but he has been unwilling to see me," he added.
Puente claims that in 1950 the Law School illegally appropriated his research in its foreign tax survey. "Dean Griswold has practically ruined ten years of my labor," he said.
Griswold, he charged, examined his unpublished works on Latin American tax problems and then included their content in a Law School pamphlet series, without consulting Puente.
