Collin College Reinstates and Settles With Prof Who Was Fired for Protected Free Speech

Collin College Reinstates and Settles With Prof Who Was Fired for Protected Free Speech

“I am happy to be back at Collin College and I am thankful to FIRE for helping me”

The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression represented this professor. They get results.

From the FIRE Newsdesk:

VICTORY: Lawsuit ends with Collin College professor reinstated after being fired for union advocacy, supporting removal of Confederate monuments

Two down, one to go in a trio of lawsuits against the Texas college that just can’t resist firing professors for exercising their First Amendment rights.

Today, administrators at Collin College agreed to a settlement that includes reinstating education professor Suzanne Jones, fired by the institution last year for her protected speech. The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression represented Jones in her lawsuit.

As part of the settlement, the college agreed to a two-year, $230,000 teaching contract with Jones and to pay $145,000 in attorneys’ fees.

“I am happy to be back at Collin College and I am thankful to FIRE for helping me,” said Jones, who worked at the college for two decades before she was fired for her protected speech.

Comments

This is great.

And FIRE is great.

But we cannot litigate every instance of Kampus Kraziness. Fair?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a brand new university were opened , say, in Bermuda or the Caribbean.

And everything was based on transparency? And meritocracy?

Outside the reach of the folks who’ve insinuated themselves in the Department of Education, etc.?

Can you imagine?

It must make liberal heads explode that FIRE just defended a professor who was fired over blue talking points.
