    Fired Colorado professor Ward Churchill loses Supreme Court appeal

    Former University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, rebuffed by the state Supreme Court Monday, said he plans to appeal his firing by the school to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    "We'll see if the U.S. Supreme Court is inclined to do any better," Churchill wrote in an e-mail to The Denver Post, shortly after the Colorado Supreme Court affirmed two lower court rulings saying Churchill was not entitled to reinstatement or back pay.
    Churchill, who was fired in 2007 from his position in CU's ethnic studies department after charges of plagiarism and academic misconduct, filed a civil lawsuit against the school for wrongful termination. He won the suit, with a jury saying his rights to free speech under the First Amendment were violated by the school. Churchill was awarded $1 by a jury, but the District Court judge declined to reinstate him.

    In 2010, the State Court of Appeals upheld the judge's decision not to give Churchill his job back. He appealed to the state Supreme Court, which made its ruling in a 55-page opinion.

    Although a university spokesman said that "everyone in the community is ready to move forward and put this matter in the rearview mirror," Churchill said he will continue to fight.

    "The number of factual misrepresentations contained in the opinion is exceeded only by the number of times the law is twisted to fit the court's preferred conclusions," he wrote.​
    Oh, you mean "factual misrepresentations" like "I'm a Native American" and "I wrote this" and "financial workers at the World Trade Center are little Eichmanns"?

    News flash, Skippy. You're a dick, and you got what you deserved. Quitcher whining about it.
