Shocker: UofL tried to withhold sex scandal records

In news that won’t surprise you, the University of Louisville tried to conceal records about the sex scandal that led the NCAA to vacate their 2013 National Championship.

According to WDRB’s Jason Riley, Jefferson Circuit Judge Barry Willett ruled today that the university made a “deliberate attempt” to keep “embarrassing and damaging information” from going public, including the material that led UofL to self-impose a postseason ban in 2016. Willett ordered the school to turn over those documents within 30 days and ruled that they must pay court costs for Dr. Peter Hasselbacher, who previously requested them in accordance with the state’s open records act.

“The University has consistently refused to produce those records based on an unreasonably narrow interpretation of Dr. Hasselbacher’s open records request,” Willett ruled. “Moreover, the University has never articulated a plausible legal basis for denying Dr. Hasselbacher access to those records. Under the circumstances, the University’s conduct appears to be nothing more than a deliberate attempt to conceal information that it considers to be embarrassing and damaging to its reputation.”

It’s always something with them, isn’t it?

      Jurich has been gone for a while. The request has been there, the lawsuit was proceeding. Don’t ya think the current admin could’ve turned them over before wasting more of the judge’s time?
