Ex-professor Ward Churchill walked out of a Denver courtroom with $1, wearing a smile and carrying a piece of red cloth, part of an eagle feather prop he used while testifying and defending himself on charges of academic misconduct. It's yet to be determined whether Churchill gets his job back at the University of Colorado, in Boulder, which fired him in July 2007 for violations of his profession, including plagiarism and fabrication.
