Ward Churchill Won’t Get Job Back, Appeals Court Rules

A three-judge panel of the Colorado Court of Appeals on Wednesday affirmed a trial court decision denying reinstatement of Ward Churchill as professor at the University of Colorado. The decision could next be appealed to the state Supreme Court, Law Week Colorado reports.

Churchill filed a lawsuit against the CU regents alleging his 2007 firing violated his First Amendment rights because it was done in retaliation to his remarks about 9/11. CU countered that Churchill was fired over plagiarism.
