UNCW appeals jury's verdict, judge's ruling in Adams lawsuit



The University of North Carolina Wilmington has filed a notice of appeal in criminology professor Mike Adams' case against the university.

The court documents filed May 7 say that UNCW is appealing the March jury verdict in Adams v. UNCW and the April order denying UNCW's request for a new trial.

But when asked if UNCW is appealing the verdict of the case, the university will only say it is "preserving its rights consistent with its responsibilities to the citizens of the state of North Carolina" in a statement regarding the legal fees in the case.

The will continue to appeal until they find someone that will side with them. I think the verdict should double with each appeal that is lost.


And what are the sanctions that will be assessed against UNCW administrators and those responsible? If I understand the facts correctly, Mr. Adams has prevailed in court after a lengthy legal battle. The university administration continues to spend the taxpayers money in its efforts against Mr. Adams.

Should Mr. Adams continue to prevail, what sanctions will be imposed upon the administrators who have deprived Mr. Adams of his rights as determined by the courts and thus squandered thousands of dollars in this pursuit? Is the university using taxpayer dollars in these endeavors? What disincentive remedy will be imposed upon the administrators, not the school, and not the taxpayers, for this folly? Without proper sanctions, there is no disincentive to such actions against other people and these administrators can act with arrogance and impunity.

Here is how UNCW treats

Here is how UNCW treats someone who actually wants to be there.

Oh well, so much for that "celebrate diversity" hogwash.

Why doesn't UNCW just abide

Why doesn't UNCW just abide by the original verdict? If it goes to trial again, likely the results will be the same.
