CU President "Professor Churchill should be dismissed for cause" 

Reported first by the Daily Camera, and reported as well by the CBS affiliate in Denver. The Camera saves the best statement by President Hank Brown for last:

�The record demonstrates that the committees took extraordinary care to consider only the allegations of research misconduct and were not motivated by any desire to punish Professor Churchill for exercising his First Amendment rights...

�Each expressly acknowledged the essential purpose of academic freedom and free speech in the University setting, but recognized that academic freedom does not protect fraudulent scholarship.�

Replies Ward Churchill's lawyer: �We�re done with kangaroo court; we�re getting ready for real court.� This should be fun.
