No job, no money for Churchill - The Denver Post

No job, no money for Churchill - The Denver Post: "A judge has ruled that the University of Colorado doesn't have to give controversial former professor Ward Churchill his job back, even though a jury found he was improperly fired.

Churchill, who taught ethnic studies at CU's Boulder campus, lost his teaching position after an investigation found he had plagiarized and falsified scholarly work for years."

While I value academic freedom, it seems to me that Churchill abused his tenured status in every way. He ends up with nothing to show for winning that lawsuit. One dollar from the jury, and nothing from the judge.
