The attorney representing LSU Professor Ivor van Heerden filed an injunction in federal court today to prevent his firing next month.
 
Last year, the LSU gave van Heerden a notice he would be terminated on May 21, 2010.  In February, van Heerden sued the University for damages, including emotional distress, lost wages and attorney fees.
 
van Heerden believes the LSU leaders tried to silence him after he was widely critical of the Army Corps of Engineers and the levee failures after Hurricane Katrina.
 
News 2 will have reaction from van Heerden and his attorney at 6 p.m.
