John Swails: Historian sues Oral Roberts over firing

Historians in the News

John Swails, a tenured faculty member of Oral Roberts University and chairman of the history department claims in a lawsuit filed earlier this month that he and two others were dismissed after confronting officials of financial and other irregularities.

Joining Swails in the law suit are Paulita Brooker, another historian, and her husband, Tim, a professor in the government department, who accused the school of requiring students to work in a Republican candidate's campaign for mayor.
