So it seems our humble efforts to keep the community informed have been of some modest benefit. The Chicago Tribune has now reported on this unfortunate misstep for the university, namely a multimillion dollar judgement in a landmark decision. The irony is not lost on me that the university would be found responsible in an Ethics Act case. Even the presence of the first Executive Inspector General, Z Scott, on the CSU Board of Trustees could not prevent this misstep. Luckily for us though the current board has complete confidence in the President or the university might really be in trouble.
Several loyal readers have asked about details of this case. I will work to provide some insights in this forum for those interested in the anatomy of a $3 million judgement. Look in the upcoming weeks to several posts about this case as I believe it is the first of many to come.
