report on Ward Churchill

Looks like he’s gotten a reprieve, however the attack has morphed into new forms, so he’s not out of danger. Here’s the overview from the “Defend Dissent” website:

“As you know, the committee of investigation headed by University of Colorado Chancellor DiStefano in the Ward Churchill case reported on March 24, finding that statements he had made did not “exceed the boundaries of a public employee’s constitutionally protected speech,” but that further investigation should be made of charges of “research misconduct” and “fraudulent misrepresentation” which had been brought to the committee during the course of its investigation. These have been referred to a standing faculty committee for further investigation and decision.”
