- "East Stroudsburg University Suspends Innocent Professor for Weeks over Facebook Comments," by Adam Kissel, April 5, 2010: East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (ESU) has reinstated professor Gloria Gadsden this week after suspending her for more than a month, pending a psychological examination, because of comments about her students on Facebook. Taking actions that would have been worthless if Gadsden had truly presented a threat as the university asserted, ESU put her on paid administrative leave because she had posted obvious jokes including that she "didn't want to kill even one student." After FIRE intervened and a clinician found her fit for work, Gadsden returned to the classroom last week.
