Professor sues university, alleges officials acted to ‘cancel’ him

Manco’s lawsuit alleges a complaint of racial bias against him was lodged in January — several weeks prior to the controversial tweets that had appeared to have prompted his suspension — by a former female student of his who had earned an “F” in his class.

St. Joseph’s University math scholar Gregory Manco has filed a lawsuit against the institution he has taught at since 2005, alleging officials conspired with former students of his to get him fired.

The lawsuit alleges a handful of administrators gave credence to false and unsupported claims of racial bias, “then used those allegations to justify an investigation, suspension and non-renewal of his contract as a Visiting Professor of Mathematics, despite his dedication and excellent performance.”

Gail Benner, a university spokesperson, told The College Fix via email Monday the school has no comment.

“The matter is before the court, and out of respect for the judicial process, Saint Joseph’s University will respond in that forum,” Benner said.
