Editorial: Churchill wins $1 more than he deserves
"Ward Churchill got a dollar more than he deserved.

A jury decided Thursday that the former University of Colorado professor was fired in retaliation for a controversial essay, yet awarded him a mere dollar in damages, the minimum allowable.

Maybe the jury came to the conclusion there was enough blame to go around. How else do you explain the rationale?

Unfortunately, the case is far from over. In a separate hearing, Denver Chief District Judge Larry J. Naves will decide whether Churchill gets his job back or is given a lump sum of money instead.

Neither scenario is particularly palatable, but one thing is certain: Anyone who practices Churchill's brand of "scholarship" does not belong in a lecture hall teaching young people."
