Update on Barnett


David Barnett, whom the University of Colorado is attempting to fire based on claims that he retaliated against a graduate student for her accusations of sexual assault by fellow graduate student (previously), “has been given relief from teaching duties, with pay, until he is given a hearing on the allegations against him,” according to his attorney. Barnett, an associate professor of philosophy, had created a 38-page report related to the sexual assault and its investigation by the university. Barnett denies most of the accusations, saying that he had not “described the alleged victim as ‘sexually promiscuous’…  did not inquire into the alleged victim’s sexual history, and made no generalizations about the alleged victim’s character or past behavior.” Barnett is appealing the termination decision, and his hearing is scheduled for sometime this fall. The rest of the story is in the Daily Camera.
