As prevously blogged, today ORU and the two professors Tim and Paulita Brooker had a mediation conference scheduled for today. The result? They have settled with the university, according to the TulsaWorld, NewsOK.com, and another TulsaWorld. Wow.
This is juicy.
TRENT HUDDLESTON’S LAWSUIT
…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.
So about that audit… Read the rest of this entry »
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?
- ORU had requested mediation. The judge ordered it.
- 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.
*Name that movie.
