Professor wins lawsuit against UNCW
By Pressley Baird
A professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington who sued the university in 2007 has won his case against the school, according to the case manager for the US District Court in Greenville.
Mike Adams, an associate professor of criminology at UNCW, accused the university of religious and speech-based discrimination when he was not promoted to full professor in 2006. A jury ruled Thursday in Adams’ favor. Adams said Thursday he was “speechless” at the end of what he called a seven-year “legal wrangling.”
“I’m just really thrilled that the jury ruled in our favor,” he said. “I’m pleased and honored.”
