Paul H. Frampton, the physics professor whose bizarre saga
of cocaine, a bikini model, and an Argentine prison became fodder for
headlines worldwide, is entitled to back pay from the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a panel of judges ruled on Tuesday.
The state’s Court of Appeals reversed a Superior Court judge’s ruling
that Mr. Frampton was not owed back pay for the period during which he
awaited trial for drug smuggling, The News & Observer reports. The university fired him last year.
