ORU LAWSUIT: TRENT & THE AMAZING INVISABLE AUDIT

July 26, 2008

This is juicy.

TRENT HUDDLESTON’S LAWSUIT

Back in November, NewsOk reported that Trent Huddleston filed a lawsuit (available here in PDF) against ORU claiming that:

…he was ordered to falsely report thousands of dollars of assets as expenses, which allowed the Robertses (sic) to spend university money on their extravagant lifestyle without agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service realizing how the money was being spent. … [and that] he was forced out of his position because he refused to remain silent about “the fact the defendants were committing illegal acts.”

Key quote from the article:

On the day Huddleston was forced out, an audit initiated by ORU’s regents was set to begin.

THE AUDIT

ORU LAWSUIT: OF ICESTORMS AND ILLNESSES

December 14, 2007

Because of the Tulsa-area power-outages, the former professors’ attorneys could not prepare for the hearing and it was consequently post-poned until January 9th. Two key issues at this preliminary hearing?

  1. ORU had requested mediation. The judge ordered it.
  2. ORU had requested that Richardson be ousted from the team because he is allegedly also Stephanie Cantees’ attorny. Richardson denies this. But, it matters not, Stephanie was too ill to appear to testify, according to this TulsaWorld article.

I find it interesting that we haven’t heard from Stephanie much. She’s pretty much the crux of the allegations. The report came from her. Can’t she at least confirm (in the media trial) that what Richard and Lindsey said about her is true? That she’s dyslexic and was asked to write down rumours? Honestly, she’s the black hole in this case.

Dyslexics, untie!*

*Name that movie.


ORU LAWSUIT: PREFERENCES

October 22, 2007

What does the bible say about conflict?  How should Christians engage in necessary conflict?  These people think the allegedly wronged professors have gone about it the non-Christian way.  Gary Richardson says that they tried to mediate before filing suit; but ORU did not respond.
