Board of Trustees to hear appeal from tenured professor, sanctioned for cause

12/6/2017 update: Or maybe they Judge will hear it after all. From the Oregonian:

A Benton County judge has ordered Oregon State University to halt termination proceedings against a longtime professor accused of sexual harassment and bullying.

The order signed late Tuesday by Judge Matthew Donohue arrives days before the university’s trustees were set to hear A. Morrie Craig’s last-resort appeal to save his job. Donohue previously ruled that the court had no jurisdiction to review Craig’s firing.

12/5/2017 update: Andrew Theen has the story in the Oregonian:

One veterinary student wrote to veterinary school dean Dr. Susan Tornquist in May to say she was “sickened” by his instruction and demeanor in the classroom. [the student], listed her concerns: “The outright falsehoods, the misinterpretation of fundamental science, the misstatements of fact, the manufactured dramatics, all overlain with an overt creepiness.”

That would be the OSU Board. Anyone have any idea what this is about?
