The Innocence Project professor of a journalism class in Northwestern University lost his job due to ethical violation issue.

A report by the Chicago Tribune say that David Protess confirmed that he was notified through email that he was taken out of his investigative journalism class in the next quarter.

Protess, however, will retain his position as director of the Medill Innocence Project (MIP). It was not clear though, if the class will still be under the MIP. The MIP investigative projects were usually handled by the Investigative Journalism students.

Since 1966, Protess and his investigative class are responsible in freeing more than 10 innocent men from prison that include those in death row.
