U. of Colorodo May Buy Out Professor Ward Churchill

Report: U. of Colo. Attorneys to Discuss Buyout With Ward Churchill's Lawyer
The University of Colorado's governing board is trying to negotiate the resignation of a professor who compared victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to Nazis, a television station reported Wednesday.The university's Board of Regents has authorized its lawyers to talk with an attorney representing Ward Churchill, a tenured ethnic studies professor, KCNC-TV said. Churchill ignited a firestorm with an essay he wrote that likened some victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to Nazi bureaucrat Adolf Eichmann, who helped organize the Holocaust."We have authorized our attorney to talk to his attorney to see where we are in this situation," Regent Patricia Hayes told the Denver television station. "I'm sure there is a price tag that he's talking about, and I'm sure there's one we're talking about."
