Professor Suing To Get Legal Fees from CU.
A judge Wednesday refused to stop dismissal proceedings against a University of Colorado professor accused of research misconduct after he filed a lawsuit seeking $20,000 in legal fees from the school.
Denver District Judge Stephen Phillips agreed with university attorney Patrick O'Rourke who argued that ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill would still be able to seek attorneys' fees and lost wages if he successfully fights to keep his job.
Churchill has denied the allegations and is appealing a recommendation by university officials that he be fired. Churchill's attorney, David Lane, asked Phillips to stop the proceedings until the legal fees issue was resolved.
Churchill angered many people with an essay that likened some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi organizer of the Holocaust.
The university concluded he could not be fired for those remarks but launched an investigation into the research misconduct charges, which led to the dismissal recommendation.

With those qualifications, he can replace Dean has head of the DNC.
Churchill update ping!
U Colo. news re: Churchill!
Among other things, Churchill was found guilty of passing off others' work as his own (plagiarism), but also of passing off his own work as others'.
This "permits the author to create the false appearance that his claims are supported by other scholars when, in fact, he is the only source for such claims"...
The Fake Indian goes down! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!
Great link. Thanks.
I am glad that the link still works.
Ward Churchill, the John Kerry of academia..
The conclusion one must draw from such examples isn't that every institution has its bad apples but rather that, at least in the liberal arts in America, moral turpitude and political hucksterism pervades higher education.
Radical criminals with questionable academic credentials flourish in a milieu that bristles with hostility toward real scholars who don't toe the party linewitness the case of former Harvard President Lawrence Summers.
Individuals with prison records or FBI rap sheets don't get into major educational institutions because they fudge their resumes.
They get in because they share the political dogmas of those who hire themand they flourish for the same reason.
SWEET Ann Coulter takes another look at the Ward Churchill controversy:
Tenure was supposed to create an atmosphere of open debate and inquiry, but instead has created havens for talentless cowards who want to be insulated from life.
Rather than fostering a climate of open inquiry, college campuses have become fascist colonies of anti-American hate speech, hypersensitivity, speech codes, banned words and prohibited scientific inquiry.
Even [leftists] don't try to defend Churchill on grounds that he is Galileo pursuing an abstract search for the truth.
They simply invoke "free speech," like a deus ex machina to end all discussion.
Like the words "diverse" and "tolerance," "free speech" means nothing but: "Shut up, we win."
I'm ashamed to say that Churchill was a product, so to speak, of Sangamon State University, now part of the Univ. of Illinois system and going by another name of Univ. of Illinois-Springfield. It was a major haven of liberals back when Churchil went through there as an undergrad. Besides all the plagiarized work(s), Churchill is a fake "native American". He tried to "portray one on TV" and was ultimately exposed for his lies and history of deceipt while being paid as a professor at Colo. It's people like him that make me fear sending my kids off to college in the future.
Hopefully by exposing his actions and the actions of the departments heads in hiring and promoting him...we can make schools of higher learning a little better.
The deptartment heads used affirmative action as a repeated excuse to advance Ward. Unfortunately there were several real native americans who did not even get an interview.
He should have a news conference where he shouts that it's the president who should be found guilty of deliberate falses assertions, misrepresentation of sources, and plagiarism. ;')
Ward Churchill would make an *excellent* running mate for whichever of the candidates the Dhimmicrats settle on for 2008.
Professor Ward Churchill Caught On Tape Advocating Terrorism vs Fellow Americans!
"Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago"

Question from audience:
You mentioned a little bit ago, "Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago," that's my question.
Churchill: I'm gonna repeat that, tell me if I got that right: Why shouldn't we do something and how do you you move so they don't see you coming.
As to the first part, not a reason in the world that I could see. I can't find a single reason that you shouldn't in a principled waythere may be some practical considerations, such as do you know how (laughter from audience)
you know, often these things are processes. It's not just an impulse. And certainly it's not just an event.
And the simple answer, although it probably should be more complicated, but I'm not being flip and giving the simple answer, is:
You carry the weapon. That's how they don't see it coming. You're the one
They talk about "color blind or blind to your color." You said it yourself.
You don't send the Black Liberation Army into Wall Street to conduct an action.
You don't send the American Indian Movement into downtown Seattle to conduct an action.
Who do you send? You. Your beard shaved, your hair cut close, and wearing a banker's suit.
There's probably a whole lot more to it, you know that. But there's where you start. .."

Video: Churchill advocates killing of Military Officers
Churchill: "Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect"
Ward Churchill has made some more despicable comments. This time, he is advocating military personnel to "roll a grenade under their line officer."
Churchill: "For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who's already been inducted in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal.
But let me ask you this: Would you render the same level of support to someone who hadn't conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?"
"...Conscientious objection removes a given piece of cannon fodder from the fray. Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect." - Ward Churchill, Portland, Oregon- 6/23/05
