Ward Churchill Redux?

, Deborah Lambert, Leave a comment

The Ward Churchill saga is far from over.

After the U. of Colorado prof was fired for plagiarism, a jury ruled that he was the victim of a “wrongful firing suit,” according to the AP and other sources.

Churchill was elated by the latest turn of events, and reiterated his firing for plagiarism was “just a cover, adding that he never would have been fired if he hadn’t called the World Trade Center victims ‘little Eichmanns.’”

All Churchill wants is to be reinstated at his old job. However, he’ll have to wait until June to find out if the hearing judge shares that opinion.

Stay tuned.
