“The first person who should have been called, is me.” (credit: CBS) Attorney Will Trachman with Mountain States Legal Foundation is suing the university on Archer’s behalf.
In a statement, CU Denver says “We followed our safety protocols and responded with good intent… In less than two hours, we sorted out any misunderstandings and invited the employee back to campus.” “I’m vaccinated. I’ve taken every precaution… I don’t know what you’re talking about. She said that somebody said they heard that you had tested positive for COVID, had it, or showing symptoms and I said, ‘Do you hear what you just said? Somebody said that they heard? So this is based on hearsay.’”
Archer says, had the university investigated the report in the first place, it would have learned she wasn’t even in the state on the dates the person allegedly came in contact with her. But she says there was no due process. Archer says she immediately called to say there had been a mistake.
A veteran teacher with 25 years of experience, Archer says, what happened to her can happen to anyone. She wants the university to change its policy to ensure due process and to release the name of the person who filed the false report, and hold that person accountable. (credit: CBS)
An historian, Archer can’t help but think history is repeating itself and that COVID-19 is the new scarlet letter, “This is a global tragedy and we’re letting this person manipulate that tragedy for own purpose? No, we can’t do that.” “There’s no COVID-19 exception to the due process clause… no matter how long Celeste Archer was barred from campus, the due process that she received before hand was nothing.”
