Colorado Univer. migh dump Ward Churchill

DENVER, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- University of Colorado officials may offer a leftist professor early retirement after he compared the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack to Nazis.

A lawyer for Ward Churchill, a faculty member in the school's ethnic studies department, said a sufficiently generous offer might interest his client, the Denver Post reported Saturday.

Churchill has long used his classes and published writings to accuse U.S. officials of race-based genocide, particularly among Indians.

Recent news of his comparing the victims of the World Trade Center attack to Nazis sparked talk of dismissing him, a process that could take years of litigation, something an early retirement deal could avoid.

Internal administration talks on such an offer have arisen just a week before a three-person panel is set to deliver a report on Churchill's fitness for tenure.

Meanwhile, fresh questions about his alleged Indian ancestry and potential cases of plagiarism are keeping him in the news.
