I am in agreement and it is consistent. Academic freedom is not license. Ethics is concerned with behavior not belief. What the censure is can be administered. To excuse such malfeasance(on part of Mr.Yoo while acting as a professional lawyer) would be upholding arguments against a tradition of independent certification of vocational competence. This brings up a great and long legal tradition of societies need to protect citizens, from malfeasance. Selling poisoned meat as a licensed meat seller is not an academic freedom issue.
