Kay reinstated, banned from UA
[news]
Marguerite Kay may have won her case against the university, but she can't set foot on UA property. Kay was reinstated to her position as a microbiology and immunology professor Feb. 4, but University of Arizona President Peter Likins issued orders to keep her away from the campus. "This is a vendetta that makes no sense," said Don Awerkamp, Kay's attorney. "Ultimately, it will cost the university more in litigation expenses."

Editorial: UA getting a second chance with Kay fiasco
[news] The never-ending story of the UA's firing of professor Marguerite Kay has been rewound to the beginning. In light of the court ruling that the 1998 termination procedures were performed incorrectly, and a recent state Supreme Court ruling that faculty members have a right to legal counsel at hearings, Kay has been rehired - sort of. In a single move, University of Arizona President Peter Likins returned Kay to her former status, with back pay, and placed her on administrative leave with recommendation for dismissal.
