    U.K. University professor, suspended 9 months, accused of sighing and sarcasm.


    "A professor at a top university was suspended for nine months after he was accused of sighing and being sarcastic during job interviews.

    Thomas Docherty was banned from the University of Warwick in January following allegations he had given off 'negative vibes' and undermined the authority of the former head of the English department.

    The English and Comparative Literature professor was said to have been 'making ironic comments' and 'projecting negative body language' when interviewing candidates for a job.

    Professor Docherty was banned from the campus and from writing references for students without permission during the suspension."
