Ward Churchill – Terminated

Ward “Little Eichmanns” Churchill was terminated (sadly only in the sense that he was fired) by the University of Colorado.  That’s welcome news even if it isn’t the kind of termination this fraud deserved.

He will sue, of course because that’s what frauds like Churchill do when they are caught plagiarising and falsifying information.  I would hope the University of Colorado will counter-sue for legal costs and damage to the institution’s reputation.

Congratulations to the University of Colorado Board of Regents who, in a display of intellectual courage, voted 8-1 to uphold the recommendation of the university’s president to fire Churchill.  A faculty committee voted 3-2 to punish Churchill for plagiarism and academic misconduct but they did not call for his firing, only his punishment.
