SANTA BARBARA, CA - In a downtown courtroom, lawyers for the Bogeyman filed suit against the University of California Santa Barbara for libel and defamation of character. The suit specifically named the Political Science Department and Professor Clough Van Geiss, who was quoted in an L.A. Times article stating the War on Terror was nothing more than a bogeyman. "My client is sick and tired of having his name and occupation drug through the mud of partisan politics," stated attorney Gray Carrington. "And while he [Bogeyman] may inspire terror, it is purely personal, non-political and protected under Freedom of Expression." Professor Van Geiss refused all comment and, according to a university spokesperson, is "hiding under the covers with all the lights on until this thing blows over."
