A little over a year ago, Ward Churchill was fired from his position as a professor at the University of Colorado on trumped up charges of academic misconduct.  His firing was the result of one of the filthiest media smear campaigns in modern history, crushing pressure brought to bear by a number of hack politicians including Governor Bill Owens, and the overwhelming cowardice of CU’s administration.

For the first time, an impartial body is set to review the facts of the case.  On March 9th, Ward Churchill’s lawsuit against the University of Colorado begins.  For detailed information about the pig circus which led to Ward Churchill’s firing, see here.

This blog will track media attention around the case, and provide timely updates, including what you can do to help.  If you’d like to attend the trial, or need help organizing or planning events around the trial, please email me at benjamin.whitmer@gmail.com.
