BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - An embattled professor who set off a firestorm with an essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to a notorious Nazi refuted allegations Wednesday he plagiarized another professor's work and physically threatened her.
The allegations arose during negotiations between Ward Churchill and the University of Colorado over a buyout of his contract in the wake of his controversial essay resurfacing in January.
Talks broke down Friday after the Rocky Mountain News reported that a professor at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia accused Churchill of plagiarizing her work and threatening her.
Churchill flatly denied plagiarizing anyone's work and said he has sometimes made threats to sue, but has never threatened anyone with violence.
"I have other things to do than sit up in the middle of the night calling people who irritate me," he told The Associated Press in an interview.
In his essay written shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Churchill called some World Trade Center victims "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who orchestrated the Holocaust.
The essay drew little attention until earlier this year, when it resurfaced after Churchill was invited to speak at Hamilton College in upstate New York. Relatives of the dead and the governors of New York and Colorado denounced Churchill and the speech was canceled because of death threats against the professor.
Churchill, 57, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, said he would consider a buyout from the university if it could be "a template" for resolving similar disputes in the future. He said his goal was not to get rich.
"Not only was (the proposed settlement) under a half million (dollars), it was well under," he said.

Funny, I don't see a denial in that thar "denial". That line would have done Slick proud.
typical bolshevik BS,..."who ya gonna believe,...me or yer lyin' eyes?"
1) "Not only was (the proposed settlement) under a half million (dollars), it was well under," he said.
What, maybe 'only' $100k?? Just to shut TFU and go away? I'll do it for that price!
2) Is that loco weed he's puffing in his right hand?
3) Is that a wedding band on his left hand? This POS has a wife?? Whoa! Gotta see pics of that! Anyone?? Please!!
4) Is that a watch on his left wrist? Can't he tell time by sensing the position of the sun?
5) Why doesn't he get a buzz cut? I'd give him my $100k to see that!
Yeah, forging paintings!
Will this sleazeball ever leave us to our usual preoccupation with Michael Jackson, Scott Peterson, Michael Schievo . We are way over our heads with sleezeballs as it is.
Professor Cohen said he called her "in the middle of the night", which I assume to mean that is when SHE received the call.
3 hour time zone difference. Denver is Mountain Time; Dalhousie U is in Nova Scotia & is Atlantic Time Zone.
So...NOT the "middle of the night...unless you're the callee in NS, rather than the caller in CO?
Yes, Clintonesque seems to cover it.
Actually, he's had 4 or 5 wives.
One is dead; one is divorced & a prof in another Ethnic Studies department in CA; the current model is a prof in his department. I'm not sure what happened to the others.
As to the current one, he was her department head, which strikes me as odd.
Okay, then lets look at the telephone records.
He didn't refute anything, he just denied them.
Typical MSM sloppiness.
Money grubbing bastard... Think of all the poor chillun' who will have to go to bed hungry because the government of CO must pay him that money. He's taking food out of the mouths of babes.
Think of all the Affirmative Action scholarships to poor but deserving Indians that will have have to axed.
He's taking government funded minorities out of his department!
Need I add the "sarcasm" tag?
I'm not surprized at the charge of plagurism. He stole Jack Nicholson's sun glasses. If he's willing to steal one of the lamest Hollywood trademarks, he'll steal anything.
What he needs to steal is a hair style. I don't think anyone could fault him for that.
Well, he took food out of the mouths of REAL Indians!
Chief Lyin' Fraud.....Mental Ward....
Give him less than 1/2 mil if they can't get rid of him for plagiarism or whatever else. It will be worth it to take away his academic credentials and kick him out of the ivory tower back onto the streets.
If he should get a settlement, let's watch what he does with it. He blasts capitalism, private property and acquisition of wealth because they "kill babies and kids all over the world". He's advocated directing resources
(money etc) to "these kids", rather than keeping what you earn.
Do you wonder just how much of any settlement Churchill gets will be given to "these kids"? He has never put his money where his mouth is.
How can you tell when Ward the wannabe Indian is lying? WHEN HE OPENS HIS MOUTH!
Ward Churchill WILL be fired! The college has enough evidence against him to fire him and he can do nothing about it. The college regents are going to fire him and if for some reason (a big IF) they don't, then their heads will be going on the block as to why not and they will be fired.
