Churchill to be suspended?

Lawyer:  Churchill Suspension Recommended

Professor Under Fire Over Allegations of Plagiarism, Shoddy ResearchA faculty committee has recommended that a University of Colorado professor accused of faulty research be suspended for one year rather than fired, according to his attorney.

David Lane said Tuesday he didn't think professor Ward Churchill should be disciplined at all but said at least committee members are moving in the "right direction."

"This will make it more difficult for (CU President) Hank Brown and the regents to fire him," Lane said. The Board of Regents oversees the university.
