University of Tennessee at Knoxville faculty call on the school to reinstate Anming Hu

Key faculty leaders at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville are calling on the university to rehire a former professor who was ensnared in a bogus espionage investigation and acquitted in September on fraud-related charges. 

Anming Hu, a former tenured professor and nanotechnology expert, has been prosecuted twice by the U.S Department of Justice, which falsely accused Hu of being a Chinese spy and charged him with wire fraud and making false statements. A federal judge threw out all charges on Sept. 9.
