Double Standards in Academia

Peter Wood's article entitled, "A Serious Blow to Academic Freedom," serves as an interesting, and appalling, illustration of the politically-correct double-standard applied to academic freedom by courts. The University of Central Florida committed a clear injustice to one of its own faculty by turning over his emails to an activist. Then they changed their minds and tried to get the emails back. The activist sued them. Judge Donald Grincewicz's opinion seems capricious and poorly argued to me, but I am not a lawyer. If Professor Michael Mann deserves the protections of academic freedom, then certainly so does Professor James Wright.
