Grand Junction Sentinel Reports: Ward Churchill Can't Get His Job Back at the University of Colorado

The Grand Junction Sentinel (10-13-10) in Grand Junction, Colorado, is reporting that the discredited plagiarist and ex-professor Ward Churchill will not get his job back at the University of Colorado in Boulder. No other papers are reporting this story, and I can't seem to access the full story at the Sentinel even though I am registered. A Churchill site is reporting that the court will hear oral arguments in Churchill's case on October 20, so the Sentinel report is a bit of a surprise. Take this apocryphal report with a grain of salt. I think something funny may be going on here. This sounds like an old story from 2009 that somehow was posted by devilish little gremlins!

Fired University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill can’t get his job back and won’t get $1 million, either, a judge ruled Tuesday. Denver District Judge Larry Naves said in a 42-page decision that reinstating Churchill at the Boulder campus would suggest to “the broader academic community that the department of ethnic studies tolerates research misconduct.” [Full text.]
