Judge, to university professor: Shame on you for ripping a teaching assistant

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that a Marquette University professor has learned a lesson about publicly criticizing graduate students. (Or maybe he hasn’t.)

Marquette University was justified in disciplining a professor who had publicly rebuked a graduate teaching assistant over her handling of classroom discussions of homosexuality, a state judge ruled on Thursday. …

Mr. McAdams vowed to appeal the ruling in a statement issued by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, an advocacy group that had provided him with legal representation. The statement argued that the university had handled his case through a process that was badly flawed and biased against him.
