Former LSU professor expected to announce civil rights lawsuit
BATON ROUGE- A former LSU professor is expected to file a federal lawsuit against the president of the university and other top administrators Thursday for violating her free speech and due process rights.
Teresa Buchanan was fired last year for her alleged use of innapropriate language and humor during lessons. Buchanan says she used sexual language and humor during lessons and role-playing exercises to help prepare her adults to become effective teachers.
The LSU Faculty Senate and the American Association of University Professors have critisized LSU for firing Buchanan. Last year the Faculty Senate called on the university to reverse its decision.
Buchanan is expected to announce the lawsuit at a press conference scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday.
