Wisconsin Supreme Court rules in favor of John McAdams
MADISON, Wisconsin (ChurchMilitant.com) - A professor won his lawsuit against a Jesuit university accused of censoring him for his Christian view of marriage.
On July 6, the Wisconsin Supreme Court sided with political science professor John McAdams in his legal battle with Marquette University overturning a previous ruling in a lower court. The Jesuit college pushed McAdams out of his position in 2014 after he made a blog post defending a student who got chewed out by an instructor for speaking up in favor of traditional marriage, suspending McAdams without pay.
The court ordered Marquette University to reinstate McAdams, stating, "We reverse the circuit court and ... order the University to immediately reinstate Dr. McAdams with unimpaired rank, tenure, compensation and benefits."
"I'm elated," McAdams said of the court's ruling. "It's been three-and-a-half years of being in limbo, one legal hassle after another."
After McAdams' blog post in November 2014, university officials began the long process of penalizing him. The Faculty Hearing Committee decided in 2016 to suspend McAdams without pay. The president of the university said McAdams could not return from suspension without a written apology.

Good news for once on the campus front.
Isn’t Marquette supposed to be a Catholic college?
No it is not “Catholic” it is a “Jesuit” university.
Now reimburse his lawyer costs and lost earnings.
God bless him!
There are still some Catholic Jesuits.
"we reverse the circuit court and remand this cause with instructions to enter judgment in favor of Dr. McAdams, conduct further proceedings to determine damages (which shall include back pay), and order he University to immediately reinstate Dr. McAdams with unimpaired rank, tenure, compensation, and benefits"
You are correct in the number “some”. But “some” is really small. I had a “straight” Jesuit 25 years ago tell me that there was a struggle within the Order between the “straights” and the “gays” for control of the Order. The Order now appears to be in control of the “progressives”. AMDG
So she feared for her safety. Tough! Has she been asked to leave a restaurant or bar? Has she been harassed or assaulted in public? Does she have protestors at her home shouting and chanting slogans? I have zero sympathy for these people that get the same treatment that conservatives get all the time.
The bent ones take it in the shorts.The prof needs to sue the school into oblivion.
