Last week Illinois Review reported (HERE) that Fabrice Tourre (photo right), a former Goldman Sachs executive who was found guilty of securities fraud, was scheduled to teach an honors economics class at the University of Chicago.
Yesterday the University announced that he will no longer be treaching this spring.
“As preparations continue for the spring quarter, Fabrice Tourre will no longer be assigned as an instructor for Honors Elements of Economic Analysis in the College," University spokesperson Jeremy Manier said in an e-mail.
Manier declined to comment on what prompted the decision or offer further details. On the courses website and on Time Schedules, Tourre’s name has been removed from the course listing, and the instructor is listed as “pending.”
