Ward Churchill: Jobless

Last April, a jury concluded that Churchill was illegally removed from his position for his political beliefs.
Recently, Chief Denver District Judge Larry Naves ruled against Ward Churchill’s request to be reinstated to Colorado University and against financial damages.

Churchill’s attorney David Lane stated:
“It’s an extremely rare thing for a judge to throw out a jury verdict — that’s big, that doesn’t happen… Here it’s being done at the expense of the Constitution of the United States of America, and it’s really a tragedy. It sends the message to the public of, ‘Oh, jury verdicts. Who cares?’”
