Legal Experts: Ward Churchill's Job is Safe
The Rocky Mountain News has extensive coverage of Ward Churchill today, including an article that quotes legal experts, including Churchill's veteran and prominent civil liberties attorney, David Lane, who explain why Churchill's job is not in danger. Unless, of course, Colorado wants to pay some big bucks to Churchill when it loses the lawsuit Churchill would file over such a firing.
I agree, particulary with the point that because the University of Colorado is a publicly funded institution, Churchill's job actually is safer than it would be if he were teaching at a private college like the University of Denver.
Here are excerpts from an interview with Churchill conducted at his home Friday. He is not sorry, and he will fight back.
Here is the text of a memo from C.U. President Elizabeth Hoffman to university faculty yesterday on academic freedom.
Churchill will be speaking at the University of Colorado in Boulder on Tuesday night. Churchill has arranged for personal security.
