Colorado Supreme Court tells The Perfesser to Go Fish, Ward Churchill's legal sock-puppet David Lane says he'll take the case to the US Supreme Court.
Leah and Retired Bill both send us the link to the Court's decision (pdf).
"The supreme court affirms the court of appeals and the trial court, both of which held that Professor Ward Churchill was not entitled to any of the remedies that he sought."Update: Apparently busy with more important local news, both the Daily Camera and the Denver Post run the AP story, which publishes (purely by chance) the single mildly waffling sentence in the entire 50-page decision that could be construed as pro-Churchill as if it were representative of the rest of the decision.
Update II: The troubled tribbles over at WCSN are all butthurt with the loss of The Perfesser's appeal (heh), claiming the death of free speech, ad nauseam (even equating Churchill's loss of his job to Native Americans' loss of their land back in the 1800s), but they fail to note that it was Churchill's legal sock-puppet's signing-off on a pretrial agreement that allowed "quasi-judicial immunity" into the case in the first place. Don't blame the courts, whiners. Blame your crack legal team.
Update III: We'd ask The Perfesser for comment, but his CU email account doesn't seem to be working.... Also (BTW), neither does the website of his little dog Benjie. [ed. note: GoDaddy got hacked today, so assuming Benjie's site was hosted there, we'll give him the BOD.]
Update IV: The Daily Camera issues its own report on the ruling, wherein we also learn that Churchill sold his house in Boulder a couple-three weeks ago and has relocated to Atlanta, where his latest wife, Truthforce, has yet to be weaned from the public teat. (ht Leah, for whom we have several sacks of unclaimed @sspats waiting)
Update V: Since Churchill got a reported half-million dollars for his Boulder pied-à-terre, maybe he can now afford to pay CU that $50,000 in legal expenses he owes them.
