Naval Academy, Professor Resolve Free Speech Dispute
January 27, 2011

The U.S. Naval Academy and Bruce Fleming, an English professor, have reached an agreement to end a complaint by Fleming that he was denied raises after he wrote an op-ed criticizing the admissions policies at Annapolis, The Washington Post reported. While details of the agreement were not released, an announcement about a federal investigation said that it had "uncovered evidence indicating that USNA illegally denied the employee a merit pay increase because of his public statements." The Fleming op-ed said that Annapolis was using a differential admissions system in which minority applicants were admitted with substantially lower academic credentials than required for white applicants.
