$21M Got the Heels out of their Mess

Money talks.
UNC-Chapel Hill has spent $21 million on legal, public relations and investigative costs related to its long-running academic scandal, bills released Friday show.

The bills from 2016 through this year show the university has spent more than $3.5 million on several law firms involved in successfully defending the university against NCAA allegations and individual lawsuits by former athletes. The university had previously spent nearly $18 million on legal, public relations, investigative and records production costs.

The university is not likely to spend much more. The NCAA’s infractions committee, after a drawn-out case that involved three separate notices of allegations, did not sanction the university. The three athlete lawsuits were dismissed by state and federal judges.

The News & Observer made a public records request for the bills in November.

Most likely, the taxpayer ultimately with some help from the students' tuition and fees..

I don't have it in front of me, but the Greensboro paper had an article today about UNC spending money on an affirmative action lawsuit. About the same amount of money. I have not read either article in full. I assume these are separate things.


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

It’s my understanding that the funds used were from private contributions .This however , in my opinion ,negates none of the rottenness surrounding or embedded in the matter. The PR campaign in and of itself was an insult .
