Ward Churchill Loses Appeal To Win Back CU Job [View all]
DENVER (AP) -- A former University of Colorado professor who compared some Sept. 11 victims with a Nazi has lost his appeal to get his job back.
The Colorado Supreme Court on Monday upheld a lower court decision against Ward Churchill.
The court said that the Denver District Court was right to direct a verdict in favor of the university and to find that the school was entitled to "quasi-judicial immunity."
Churchill's 2007 termination came after an essay he wrote described some victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi leader who helped orchestrate the Holocaust.
