Ward Churchill Goes to Supreme Court - Location Moved

Ward Churchill will be before the Supreme Court of Colorado on June 7th.  In a very encouraging move, the Supreme Court has agreed to consider all of the plantif's questions without qualification, which is very rare.  The Westword article has a good interview with the atorney David Lane about their chances, and you can also see the recent article from the Daily Camera.   For a very in-depth look at the case, visit wardchurchill.net.  See you in court!

The folowing post was recently submitted to the newsfeed but disapeared in a few days.  The content in no way violates the editorial policy, so I am at a loss of how it disapeared.  I emailed the COIMC list about it, and I am a member of that list so I know that it was not approved for moderation to be sent out to the list.  With no information or idea of what happened to this post, I am re-posting it.  COIMC editors may contact me at stanley1848@riseup.net .
