Madison teacher reinstated after race complaint

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal judge has ordered the reinstatement of a former history instructor at Madison Area Technical College who claimed he was fired for complaining about anti-Semitic discrimination in the college.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that U.S. District Judge William Conley also awarded Michael Dubin more than $550,000 in back wages and damages.

Dubin sued the MATC after it fired him 2009, claiming his termination was retaliation for his complaints about anti-Semitic discrimination at the college.

A federal jury agreed in May. This week, Conley signed off on a judgment granting $255,000 in back wages, plus interest, and $300,000 in damages.

Conley also ordered Dubin reinstated and that any reference to the nonrenewal of his probationary contract in 2009 be removed from his personnel file.
