Former university professor Ehlert taking UOG to Supreme Court

Posted: Jun 15, 2018 5:18 PM Updated:

Longtime University of Guam psychology professor Dr. Michael Ehlert is taking his former employer to the Supreme Court. Dr. Ehlert, as we reported, was tried and convicted for two counts of felony criminal sexual conduct.

That guilty verdict was rendered on July 31, 2017. The following day, he was terminated from UOG on grounds he was a convicted sex offender.

Ehlert, according to court fillings, asserts that the University prematurely terminated him from his position noting the trial court had not yet entered a judgment of conviction. That judgment wasn't entered until November 1st.

The University asserts that because the judgment has been entered, Ehlert's petition is futile and moot.

Oral arguments in this case will be heard on October 30th.

As we reported, three females who attended a party at Ehlert's home accused him of inappropriately touching them while swimming at a nearby beach.

Only two of those allegations resulted in convictions.
