BOULDER, Colo. (Legal Newsline)-The controversial University of Colorado professor who likened victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to a Nazi leader has been awarded just $1 in damages for wrongful termination.
A jury panel of four women and two men in Denver found Thursday that Ward Churchill was fired as a professor of ethnic studies at the Boulder campus in retaliation for his remarks. The jury deliberated for a day and a half.
For its part, the university's board of regents claimed it fired 61-year-old Churchill for academic misconduct, including plagiarism.

It won't be, but CU will still suck for decades because they hired this Bozo in the first place.
If I saw a punk pussy wannabe hippie like this upon entering the classroom I'd turn around and walk out. It's simply appalling that we subject our offspring to this vile depravity.
The university would win on appeal. His academic fraud became know because individuals outside the university exposed it.; and only then did the school move to dismiss him.
I’m glad he won. Hopefully CU will lose enrollment and alumni funds and then perhaps they and other universities will give their hiring greater consideration.
He had tenure and he had a 1A right to say whatever dimwitted thing he wanted. But he was also a plagerer and from what I’ve read, not a very good scholar. The University should have been more careful in hiring. There are probably 50 others just as bad or worse than Churchill at CU and thousands more nationwide.
He gets a buck, no more and he can never sue again.
What say you FR lawyers or anyone else?
This Ward Churchill sounds like evil lying scum to me.
