DENVER - Former University of Colorado Professor Ward Churchill said justice was delivered after he won his case against the school, but was only awarded $1 in damages by the jury.
The jury ruled in Churchill's favor, deciding that when he was fired in 2007 it was because a majority of CU's Regents were responding to political pressure stemming from outrage over an essay he wrote after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.In the essay, he compared Sept. 11 victims inside the World Trade Center towers to an infamous Nazi.
CU had maintained the ethnic studies professor was dismissed for plagiarism and academic misconduct.
