Jury Strikes Blow for Incompetent Professors Everywhere

Give me a break. I know Harvard PhDs at the University of Washington who haven't been able to get tenured positions yet, and they give this idiot, with a MS in Communications from some unknown experimental university a department chair at CU. He should have never been hired in the first place. Firing was the correct action.

DENVER — A jury ruled Thursday that the University of Colorado wrongly fired the professor who compared some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi, a verdict that gives the professor $1 and a chance to get his job back.

"What was asked for and what was delivered was justice," Ward Churchill said outside the courtroom.

Then-Gov. Bill Owens was among the officials who had called on the university to fire Churchill after his essay touched off a national firestorm, but the tenured professor of ethnic studies was ultimately terminated on charges of research misconduct.
