Marquette professor dispute to go before Wisconsin Supreme Court

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

A dispute between a conservative professor and the university that fired him goes before the Wisconsin Supreme Court to decide whether the teacher's termination was because of a blog post or his conduct.

Former Marquette University professor John McAdams says in a lawsuit he was fired for exercising his freedom of speech by criticizing what he saw as an instructor shutting down a discussion against gay marriage.

The school says he was fired for sharing the instructor's contact information.
