UC officials released over 9,500 pages of internal documents per request of The Sacramento Bee. Emails were also released and ranged from messages of disdain regarding Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi’s actions to messages of support from colleagues.
According to The Sacramento Bee, internal investigations found an egregious lack of leadership by University officials while attempting to deal with the incident.
The documents illustrated the large extent to which the administration was overwhelmed.
“At this point we have 133 videos on YouTube under the search for ‘UC Davis pepper spray,'” an email from an official stated.
Most recently, the University settled a lawsuit through $1 million that will be paid to the plaintiffs of the lawsuit. Katehi will issue personal apologies to them as well.
