Following up on my previous posts (links below): Emory Wheel, Law Professor on Leave After Allegedly Repeating Racial Slur:
Emory Law Professor Paul J. Zwier II, who was briefly suspended from teaching after he said the N-word in class in August, has been placed on paid administrative leave after the University received multiple reports that he recently repeated the same racial slur, according to School of Law Interim Dean James B. Hughes Jr.
Hughes announced Zwier’s leave on Monday following a Friday statement that he was investigating allegations against the tenured professor.
The dean said the University is continuing to “gather the facts” regarding the new allegations in Monday’s statement to the Wheel via Associate Vice President of University Communications Nancy Seideman.
