Dan Kaufman, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado, is suing his university and several of its employees for $2 million for damages relating to his “banishment” from campus for two months this past spring.
Kaufman has filed four notices of claim, a step required by Colorado law for anyone seeking to sue a public entity, and alleges that he has suffered discrimination and retaliation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. He is also claiming defamation, slander and intentional infliction of emotional distress by the university, among other claims….
The most recent notice of claim, filed Aug. 6, names Provost Russ Moore, College of Arts and Sciences Dean Steven Leigh, philosophy chairman Andy Cowell, and CU spokesman Bronson Hilliard as employees involved in Kaufman’s injury. Kaufman is seeking damages for lost future employment opportunities, severe emotional distress and attorney costs.
