Ward Churchill Awarded $1 in Wrongful Termination Suit

A jury found that Churchill was fired by the University of Colorado in retaliation for his controversial essay on 9/11.

This is probably making some interns over at Fox news salivate: the Denver Post reports that Ward Churchill, the iconoclastic scholar condemned for an essay in which he referred to victims of the 9/11 attacks on the WTC as “little Eichmanns”, has won his wrongful termination suit against the University of Colorado:

Ward Churchill won his case against the University of Colorado today as a Denver jury unanimously decided he was fired in retaliation for his controversial essay about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The jury gave Churchill $1 for past losses, finding he was fired over protected free speech.

No doubt this story will be repeated ad nauseum by conservatives as a sign of liberal degeneracy, at least once they stop screeching about the “OMG! Obama gave the Queen of England an iPod!” storyline.
