Churchill v. The Board of Regents of the University of Colorado

This brief argues in support of Ward Churchill's appeal that his firing poses a threat to the First Amendment rights of all people, and particularly to academic freedom. The brief contends further that immunity granted to university regents for their role in Churchill’s firing could undermine Section 1983 of Title 42 of the U.S. Code, which has been a bulwark of civil rights since Reconstruction.
