FIRE, one of the good guys in watching out for academic freedom, is fighting on behalf of University of Oklahoma professor David Deming:

"Professor Deming has filed a federal lawsuit after OU removed him from his department, stripped him of most of his classes, and moved his office to a converted basement lab, all while claiming to respect the principles of academic freedom.  Public records requests have uncovered damning evidence that OU administrators schemed to marginalize and isolate him for his attempts at whistleblowing and for his political expression."

At least they didn't take his Swingline stapler.

You don't suppose that FIRE being on the case is a veiled threat to burn the place down, do you?
