"The university served Hufnagel with a “notice of intent” to fire him in March at the end of a seven-month investigation by its Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination. The action came just days before the Cal Bears played their first and, it turned out, only game in the NCAA tournament, losing to Hawaii."
"Only Mr. Hufnagel is able to explain why he apparently withheld hundreds of messages that he now believes to be relevant,” Mogulof said.
In other words, don’t look for the university to budge.
Singer said that if UC Berkeley officials don’t change their minds soon, Hufnagel will “pursue other options” — including taking legal action and going public with all 900 text messages."
"Lawyers for Hufnagel say they've given UC Berkeley 900 text messages between him and the reporter showing what they call "mutual flirtation."
Hufnagel is on paid leave while he appeals his termination.
The university released a statement about Monday's developments, saying, "There was nothing preventing him from submitting anything that he thought would support his position and it remains unclear why he apparently withheld hundreds of text messages he now believes to be relevant.""
