DENVER (AP) - A former University of Colorado professor who compared some Sept. 11 victims with a Nazi has lost his appeal to get his job back.

The Colorado Supreme Court on Monday upheld a lower court decision against Ward Churchill.

The court said that the Denver District Court was right to direct a verdict in favor of the university and to find that the school was entitled to "quasi-judicial immunity."

A CU spokesman says the ruling was a victory for faculty members who follow the rules.

A Churchill attorney says he'll appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Churchill's 2007 termination came after an essay he wrote described some victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi leader who helped orchestrate the Holocaust.
