Judge Denies Attorney-Client Privelege in IPFW Chancellor Case

A judge has ruled that Purdue University cannot claim attorney-client privilege as a reason to prevent disclosure of a report into former Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne chancellor Michael Wartell’s ouster from his post. Wartell was forced out in 2011 under a Purdue policy that requires university executives to retire at age 65. The Journal Gazette reports Wartell has sued the university, claiming discrimination and harassment.
