OUCH...So Dobranski is a "Director" at AMU

Torgo went to this free Form 990 search site and found some goodies.

According to the 2002, Ave Maria University, Inc. IRS Form 990, Bernard Dobranski is a Director of the University....

So much for not being conflicted. So much for a lot of things that were said... (must have had the fingers crossed behind the back).

Solely for the curious. This page was found on the 2003 Ave Maria School of Law Foundation 990.

Torgo will add some more here after some more digging.

Hmm...this explains the mysterious meetings in Florida. Given he made a point to mention in Moral Foundations this year that you can disagree with the catechism on the matter of LYING (yeah, it's true...but him SAYING it...)... Given he, himself, insisted there is no board member in common between Ave Maria the college and Ave Maria the law school on the board...

Anyone think he probably would also argue about the definition of "is"?

Fessio, Ryan, Dobranski, and Monaghan all sat in the AMSoL Board room AND the AMC Board room during the AMC-giveaway to AMU. They too claimed that AMC and AMU were "autonomous".

Side note - AMU also illegally used AMC's web domain name "" for years before AMU (lacking accreditation) could legally use the name per Dept. of Commerce rules. AMU is now going to illegally assume the name as registrant even though the Dept. of Commerce is clear that .edu domain names cannot, under any circumstances, be transfered. Prohibiting name transfers, along with prohibiting unaccredited schools from using .edu, protect the public from sheysters.

So, "autonomy" (and federal rules) only applies when it benefits Tom and AMU

Obviously, the website producing these 990s is skewed.

There is no merit to the charges made by the faculty and the alumni.

Really, there is no reason not to have the utmost confidence in Bernie. There is no evidence anywhere to suggest that he doesn't serve the best interests of the law school.

I'd like everyone to know that there are no directors shared between the law school and the university.

Also, I'd like everyone to know that I have no personal interest in moving the law school.

I'd also like everyone to know that I hold in highest esteem all of my fiduciary duties, but most of all to my paycheck from Uncle Tom, who purchased a cabin in Imokkalee for me.

I'd really like to share with you the rich ethical tradition and fine Catholic foundation of Ave Maria University.

You can rest assured that your children will learn the highest ethical values from these people.

Send me money now so I can ensure you will learn about ethical behavior.

You know better than to lie to these people. I did not give you anything. I leased a house to you on weekly renewal provided I get my status report and provided you move that law school. Anything more than that and you might be able to act on your own.

HOW MUCH is that nitwit getting paid. Did I see something around $280,000.00 for being a lecherous traitor? Ouch.

Watch it, anonymous.

1. According to, half of law school deans earn between $195,743 and $261,993, so the Deanino's salary isn't grossly disproportionate.

2. Lecherous is defined as having or showing offensive or excessive sexual desire. What the heck are you talking about.

Perhaps your incredulity has interfered with your vocabulary (or are you carring a Dobranski love child)?
