WYFF reported the strangest story of the year.
Dr. Christopher Healy, PhD, filed the breach of contract civil action against Furman University for his suspension. His attorney said in a release that the professor filed a lawsuit after he was suspended “without notice or explanation.” However, the suspension was warranted. The university became aware through social media and emails that Healy participated in the deadly “Unite the Right” rally, The white supremacist rally was in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
The two-day gathering included members of the alt-right, neo-Confederate, white nationalists, klansmen and far-right militias. Healy admitted to participating in the racist rally while on summer break from teaching at Furman. So Furman suspended him to investigate. Seems reasonable under the circumstances.
Sounds like Healy likes to play the victim.
Furman University has not publicly responded to the suit.
