Former professor Ward Churchill has sued the University of Colorado after the school terminated his employment as a tenured professor of ethnic studies.
He says they fired him because he expressed controversial views.
CU says they terminated him for plagiarism.
Interesting that the plagiarism allegations only surfaced after Churchill made the provocative statements he says referred to the workers in the financial sector "greasing the wheels of American oppression." Do you think the plagiarism allegations could have resulted from a retaliatory investigation? 9News is covering the civil trial as it unfolds this week, and the reporting is excellent.
