John McAdams case against Marquette University over academic freedom goes to Wis Supreme Court

Professor John McAdams’ lawsuit to get his job back at Marquette University got a boost Monday when the Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed to hear his case.

We are pleased that the state Supreme Court has agreed to hear our case on behalf of John McAdams,” said Rick Esenberg, President and General Counsel at the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL). “It is very important to have clarification on this important issue and I’m glad that John will have his day in court sooner than later.”

Esenberg and WILL said they asked the court to take the case because, “there is no binding precedent on the question of how far academic freedom extends.”

A ruling from the court will also provide a standard for the rights of professors at UW System schools and private universities and colleges that also promise their faculty academic freedom,” according to a WILL press release.
