Several professors testified that the University of Colorado’s investigation of Ward Churchill was unfair during today’s continuing trial in Denver District Court.

Churchill, 61, is suing CU for firing him in 2007 from his position as a professor of ethnic studies in Boulder. He claims he was terminated while exercising his First Amendment rights and writing a controversial essay on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that prompted political outrage.

The university contends that Churchill falsified and plagiarized his scholarly writings and that his firing was solely related to academic misconduct.
