Absent an Injunction, The Process of Firing Ward Churchill Continues!

"Rules for thee but Not for Me!"----Ward Churchill, tenured Plagiarist of Ethnic Studies

According to the University of Colorado faculty newsletter, Silver and Gold Record [right side], on October 5, 2006, the Privilege & Tenure Committee Chair Weldon Lodwick told the CU faculty that Ward Churchill, CU's tenured Plagiarist of Ethnic Studies, "has received a 60-day extension in his P&T dismissal process, to allow him to seek an injunction regarding CU's refusal to provide him with $20,000 in legal fees."

"Such payments to faculty involved in dismissals, while recommended by Faculty Council and included in the council's bylaws, were never approved by the Board of Regents, pending an attorney general's opinion. Lodwick said the suspension of Churchill's case expires on Nov. 6. At that time, he said, absent an injunction, the process will continue with or without Churchill's participation."

"Churchill told S&GR that he is pursuing the injunction to halt the dismissal process until CU officials resolve the issue of the $20,000. "What I want a judge to say is, `You've tabled this; do you ever plan to submit it to the attorney general?' "

This whole issue has already been discussed in "Legal Lane's Lament."
