Caplis: Plagiarism story "throws monkey wrench" into CU-Churchill buyout deal

KHOW's Dan Caplis, citing "very reliable sources" within the University of Colorado, said the revelation of another charge of plagiarism against Ward Churchill "throws a monkey wrench" into a buyout deal that was reported to be close to completion earlier today. Talks now are "stalled," according to Caplis. This latest blow to Churchill is "not only a smoking gun academic fraud story, but there was the threat of violence too," Caplis said.

Update: Caplis again: deal is "off the table" for now.
