Regent gets regional: A Q&A with UC Regents chair George Kieffer
DC: Can you comment on the allegations against former regent Norman Pattiz?
GK: This was a new issue for us — something being brought to public attention outside the Board of Regents. Honestly we had not ever addressed that before. That was something we had to deal with on a policy basis. … It put us in a situation where we have a regent denying what has been said, a newspaper saying something and a reaction from the public and students saying that we should take action. Our view was we needed to let this play out in court, rather than force some action by Pattiz. … He planned to resign rather than being forced to resign. My sense was this was a decision that he should make, that he probably would make, that he did make. From the outside, it was more simple than what it was in reality."...
