Dr. Mike Adams is a professor at the University of North Carolina. When he converted to Christianity he faced systematic illegal discrimination by his department and the UNC administration.
University officials were caught in blatant perjury in open court. The university had also gone back and changed documents regarding Dr. Adams’ employment history and were caught. Below the video are links to several columns Dr. Adams wrote telling every detail of the story and his trial. It is a great read.
March 18, 2010 was one of the worst days of my life. That was the day Judge Malcolm Howard threw my lawsuit against UNCW out of court. Three years after filing suit and a full eight years after I started to criticize universities, including my own, for violating the First Amendment I lost a bid to go to trial. I also lost all credibility as a free speech advocate. Or so I thought.
Don’t let anyone tell you that our university officials are ignorant of the First Amendment. They are not. In fact, they know all about it. But they are actively trying to destroy it with one convoluted argument at a time. The most extreme example I ever saw occurred in Richmond, Virginia on January 26, 2011.
A trial is a thing to be avoided whenever possible. When it becomes impossible to avoid, it consumes you. You lose a measure of control over your life and you just have to trust your attorneys and follow their orders. In March, my attorneys ordered me to sit down and read my deposition, which was taken back in 2009. They warned me that in my trial, which was scheduled to start on March 17, 2014, opposing counsel might try an old trick on me. They might just ask the same questions from that deposition, simply for the purpose of eliciting an inconsistent statement that could impeach my credibility.
Defendant Kimberly Cook is not your ordinary sociologist. Before she even opens her mouth she comes across as an attractive and confident person.
I first met David French back in 2004. He had just taken a job as president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE. I loved working informally with their organization and wanted to make sure our relationship remained intact under the new leadership. So I picked up the phone and called David just to introduce myself and to wish him good luck. That phone call would drastically alter the course of my life.
We had been sitting in the attorney/client waiting room for less than two hours when we heard a knock on the door.
