The interim dean of Saint Louis University's School of Law, Thomas Keefe, has resigned.
Keefe's resignation comes amid speculation that he was being forced to resign over a history of lewd and inappropriate comments.
A trial lawyer from the Metro East, Keefe was tapped to serve as dean by University President, Father Lawrence Biondi, following the protest resignation of former dean Annette Clark.
