Professor appeals ruling on lawsuit over NCSU job

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A professor who says her remarks about a Palestinian film cost her a job at North Carolina State University wants the state Supreme Court to review her case.

Lawyers for Terri Ginsberg filed an appeal this month of a ruling by the state Court of Appeals, which dismissed her lawsuit.

Ginsberg says her remarks in support of a Palestinian filmmaker at a public screening of his movie left her frozen out of consideration for a tenure-track job.

The appeals court ruled in November that Ginsberg failed to prove her remarks had anything to do with the university giving another candidate the job.

Ginsberg’s appeal argues that the court’s decision could harm free speech in academic settings.
