  • A judge has ordered a public university in North Carolina to pay $700,000 in legal fees for a professor who was denied a promotion because of his conservative Christian views.

    Criminology professor Mike Adams sued the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW) in 2007, claiming the school denied him full professorship because his political and social views changed when he converted to Christianity.

    On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Malcolm Howard ordered the university to give Adams the promotion as well $50,000 in back pay and the additional $700,000 in legal fees, according to the Star News, a local news source.

    A jury in Greenville ruled in favor of Adams in March.

    Adams was open about his Christian faith in both print and broadcast media.
