From today’s Daily Cal:
[The defendant’s representative Thomas] Frampton went on to address the issue of “extraordinary timeline violations” that he alleged have occurred in the 14 months since the November 2009 protests. He said while campus officials have maintained that timeline violations have been due to difficulties assembling hearing panels due to staff layoffs, new information revealed that this has not been the case.
Frampton said information he obtained through a public records request shows the campus held about 25 panel hearings and resolved 29 student conduct cases since January 2010.
The panel, however, ruled that it was “outside the panel’s authority to dismiss the case based on this extra evidence.” Following the hearing, Susan Trageser, director of the Center for Student Conduct and Community Standards, was out of the office and could not be reached as of press time.
