Professor sues Purdue after probe of his anti-Muslim Facebook comments
by Mike Jaccarino
A Purdue University professor has filed a freedom of speech suit against his school and five co-workers after getting in hot water for inflammatory statements about Muslims on his Facebook page.
Tenured political science professor Maurice Eisenstein was cleared by a university investigation into his Facebook comments, which included a reference to "the idiot Mohammad [sic}, may his name be cursed." But Eisenstein claims the investigation nonetheless damaged his reputation and disputes a finding that he retaliated against other faculty members.
"I was trying to be challenging as a professor, and do what I was trained to do," Eistenstein, who joined the school's faculty in 1993, told FoxNews.com.
