Judge Naves to Rule on Ward Churchill Reinstatement on July 1

"[Judge Larry] Naves will decide whether [ex-professor Ward] Churchill, 61, gets his job back at CU or whether he should be paid a lump sum of money instead. The judge could also choose to award the former professor nothing."---Daily Camera (5-27-09)

Boulder Colorado's Daily Camera (5-27-09) reports:

Former University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill will make his case for getting his job back during a one-day hearing to be held July 1, a Denver District Court clerk said Wednesday.

Chief Denver District Court Judge Larry Naves will preside over the hearing, during which both Churchill and the University of Colorado will argue for and against reinstatement of the former controversial ethnic studies professor.

Churchill was fired nearly two years ago by the CU regents after the school claimed he had committed widespread and systematic academic fraud.

He sued CU in civil court and won his case during a jury trial earlier this year after he argued that the university had unlawfully terminated him for expressing his political beliefs in a controversial essay he wrote concerning the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States.

The Denver jury awarded him $1 in damages.

Naves will decide whether Churchill, 61, gets his job back at CU or whether he should be paid a lump sum of money instead. The judge could also choose to award the former professor nothing.
