BOULDER, Colo.

A five-person investigative committee has found serious cases of misconduct in the academic research of a professor who likened some of the Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi, a University of Colorado spokesman said Tuesday.
The committee’s 125-page report said Ward Churchill falsified, fabricated and plagiarized some of his research, did not always comply with standards for listing other authors’ names and failed to follow accepted practice for reporting results.
The decision on his future at the university will be made by school officials later this year. Churchill has said if he is fired, he will sue.
BACKGROUND
The professor touched off a firestorm with an essay relating the 2001 terrorist attacks to U.S. abuses abroad. The essay referred to some World Trade Center victims as “little Eichmanns,” a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who carried out Adolf Hitler’s plan to exterminate European Jews during World War II.
University officials had earlier determined Churchill could not be fired for his comments about the terrorist attacks, but they launched an inquiry into allegations about his research.
