Fight Not Over: Churchill Sues CU ["I am going nowhere," Churchill said Tuesday......]

Fight Not Over: Churchill Sues CU Professor Compared 9-11 Victims To Nazis

POSTED: 9:34 pm EDT July 24, 2007 UPDATED: 2:14 pm EDT July 25, 2007 BOULDER, Colo. -- Just when you thought the saga between Ward Churchill and the University of Colorado was over, it's not.

The CU professor is challenging his dismissal from the university and it could take another year before a jury hears the case.

"I am going nowhere," Churchill said Tuesday after university regents voted 8-1 to dismiss him.

The regents said that they fired the ethnic studies professor on grounds of academic misconduct and plagiarism. The university said he is not being fired for his volatile speech about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Churchill's essay, titled "Some People Push Back: On Justice Of Roosting Chickens," compared some of the victims of the World Trade Center to Nazi Adolf Eichmann, who helped orchestrate the Holocaust. That comparison sparked a national outrage and forced school officials to closely scrutinize Churchill's academic writings, research, and even his ethnicity.

Churchill's lawyer said they are "now on offense" and he will electronically file a First Amendment retaliation lawsuit on Wednesday. Attorney David Lane said this is an amendment to a pending lawsuit that Churchill had filed in October 2006 over a salary dispute.

I’m glad he’s sticking around. He’s been very useful to me in political forums. Just ask somebody what they think of Churchill, and you’ll know exactly what your dealing with.

I do not care if he does not go. Just do not pay him, give him office space, classroom space, or a parking space. Then if he sticks around, find out how to charge him rent.

A “First Amendment retaliation” suit? He got fired for plagarism and lies about his academic qualifications, not his comment about little Eichmanns or other stupid remarks he made during speeches.

If he was a minority he would have a good chance. As a white guy with no minority privilege, he is sunk.

After the board's decision was announced, Churchill's supporters met him with T-shirts, signs and banging drums.

Whaaa! Banging drums. What a bunch of drug addled idiots. No doubt many of them are fake Indian wannabees like their hero.

Ward will get a $95k check as he leaves...and rapidly spend that in less than nine months on himself and the lawyers. I doubt that he has more than $100k in savings. As for speaking engagements...he won’t get much of a invitation to come on university grounds...and without special interest groups backing him...his future is slim.

He anticipates that he can overturn the decision...but I’m guessing that state court won’t agree with that (more right-wing than left)....and the supreme court won’t touch this matter (my honest opinion). So eighteen months of sitting around Colorado Springs...won’t do nothing but burn up the $95k and his savings. He will write a book...but sales will likely be dismal.

The professor is referring to his career, right?

Do not give him any space. There are more deserving people for that space.
Do not let him in front of any classroom.

The falsifying of his resume is enough to be fired over. I would be fired if I did it, and so would any of you.

Didn’t he sign on as a Native American?

Perhaps he’s claiming that one again?....:^)

Not much of a surprise. When has a liberal ever admitted their own bad deeds, except for Clinton when he didn’t know the outcome of the DNA test on the blue dress and had to fess up.

I think so too. Given how reluctant courts have been to intervene in tenure decisions, it's hard to believe that they will see any merit to his claim that he wasn't really fired for his obvious plagiarism and fabrication of "facts."

I sure hope he’s going “nowhere”. For now, though, I’ll bet he can see “nowhere” from where he’s sitting.

‘maybe they could change the lock on his former office door. that might help.”

No, you bring him in for an exit interview and cover with him the residual benefits he still has as a former employee. Then, you retrieve his badge and have him escorted out. The next step, if not already done, is to deactiviate all of his door entry cards, delete all of his IT clearances and notify campus security that he is no longer employed and not grated entrance onto campus grounds.
This is the firm but dignified manner in which a fired employee is dealt with in the real world.

Is CU a private or state university? If it isn’t state-owned, there can be no 1st Amendment issue as private entities aren’t obligated under the 1st Amendment to give anyone free speech.

He may have an Equal Protection case if the regents haven’t applied a uniform standard. Otherwise he will lose since his 1st Amendment claim is without merit.

Churchill's lawyer said they are "now on offense" and he will electronically file a First Amendment retaliation lawsuit on Wednesday.

Keep in mind that Churchill and some of his fellow travelers violated the First Amendment rights of others when they tried to block the Columbus Day parade in Denver a few years ago.
