DENVER (AP) — An attorney for the University of Colorado professor who compared some September 11 victims to a notorious Nazi said yesterday he expects a settlement with the school “within the next day or so.”

A member of the university’s governing Board of Regents confirmed negotiations were under way between the school and Ward Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies. Mr. Churchill drew outrage by writing that some World Trade Center victims were “little Eichmanns,” a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who helped organize the Holocaust.

Mr. Churchill’s attorney, David Lane, said he expected an agreement shortly but declined to discuss specifics, including the dollar amount and whether it would mean the university would buy out Mr. Churchill’s contract.

The Denver Post reported yesterday that Mr. Churchill and the university had agreed on a sum for a buyout, and that it could be less than $500,000. The newspaper, citing unnamed sources, said neither side had decided whether to accept a buyout deal.
