The U of O Gets Its Documents Back
The University of Oregon says 22,000 pages of archived documents that were released illegally have been returned.
Economics Professor Bill Harbaugh acknowledged that he had them, and had given them back. He says he did no wrong.
The Register-Guard reports the university said the return was a personnel matter. The UO gave little detail Wednesday about the return.
Interim President Scott Coltrane last week sent out a campus-wide email saying that two employees were on leave. He said the records were released without a check for material that privacy laws require to be kept confidential.
The records in electronic form covered the years 2010-2014 from the office of the school's president.
There was no word Wednesday on the fate of the two employees, believed to be university archivists.
