CU's Silver & Gold Record has details about the Regents' July 24 meeting to vote on firing Ward Churchill:
McKinney said the private hearing will likely consist of three parts. First, outside counsel from the Colorado Attorney General's office will brief the board on the day's schedule, the materials available to them and the scope of the hearing. Secondly, she said, attorneys for CU, Churchill and P&T will have a set amount of time to make their presentations to the regents. New evidence may not be presented at the hearing, according to McKinney, although the regents may ask questions regarding the record of the case and the presentations made at the hearing. Thirdly, she said, the regents will be given time to deliberate in private before conducting their public vote in the University Memorial Center Glenn Miller Ballroom.

McKinney estimated that the meeting will convene at around 8 or 8:30 a.m., when the regents will vote to go into executive session, and won't likely reconvene in public until about 4:30 p.m. During the open meeting at the end of the day, board members may elect to make comments before they vote, she noted. If the regents opt against dismissal they can choose lesser sanctions, or they can return Churchill to the classroom without penalty, McKinney said.
Yeah, that'll happen.
