University Expected to Fire Controversial Professor Today

( - Ward Churchill's own lawyer expects the tenured University of Colorado professor to be fired on Tuesday. "Ward Churchill will be fired, and Wednesday, I'll be filing a lawsuit" over free-speech rights," the Denver Post quoted attorney David Lane as saying.

Churchill drew attention to himself by writing an essay questioning the innocence of those who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. He described the victims as "technocrats" and "little Eichmanns" (Nazis). Amid the uproar over the insult, the university began investigating Churchill's academic work. A panel eventually concluded that he had plagiarized, fabricated and falsified some of his research and writings.

Expect the “self-appointed” victim card to be played here.
