Marquette Professor Claims Breach of Contract in Suit Against University
Marquette Professor Claims Breach of Contract in Suit Against University
5/2/2016 || Marquette University Associate Professor John McAdams filed a lawsuit against the University on Monday for “illegally suspending” him in the fall of 2014 and “making the decision to terminate his tenure and fire him from Marquette” over a blog post. The post criticized an instructor who called a student’s defense of marriage “homophobic.”

The suit, filed in Milwaukee County Circuit Court, makes several breach of contract arguments and seeks to have McAdams reinstated as a tenured professor at Marquette.

“Marquette University guarantees its tenured faculty academic freedoms, including the right to free speech,” the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), which is representing McAdams, stated in a press release. “That right was violated when Marquette suspended Professor McAdams for blogging about an incident between an undergraduate student and a graduate instructor where the Instructor told the student that any discussion on gay marriage in an ethics course would be considered homophobic and inappropriate.”
