"This is not a question about the investigation, it is a question about the cooperation and lack thereof from a department within UC Davis."

Why is a PUBLIC University allowed to be NON Responsive to -- the Public?:
"The bigger problem, it turns out, is that the investigators apparently have no power to compel people to come forward and speak with them. None of this is all that surprising, but it is going to temper the ability of the Kroll Investigators, as well as Cruz Reynoso's task force, to really get to the bottom of this.

I do not expect the District Attorney's office's investigation to yield anything that will come to criminal charges, and that presents a real problem in that we may never really know what happened and we might be left to subjectively deduce from not much more than we know now.

There is now a real problem with the legitimacy of the independent investigation.

We asked Claudia Morain about this situation and she referred us to the University of California Office of the President and told us to talk to Peter King, who has neither responded to emails nor a phone message.

However, more importantly, we told the UC Davis News Service, "I respectfully believe the issue of lack of UC Davis police cooperation with the investigation is a question for UC Davis."

This is not a question about the investigation, it is a question about the cooperation and lack thereof from a department within UC Davis.

Ms. Morain told me that she would get back to me. That was on Tuesday. Two days later I got no response and asked again, and I have not gotten a response yet.

Disappointing, but not surprising."
