Authorization for Settlement
(1) The university counsel recommends that the board approve settlement of Harrison v. Spencer, et al. in the amount of $125,000. The plaintiff alleges that prior to performance of a laminectomy, defendants knew, or should have known, that plaintiff had a large herniated nucleus pulposis and that defendants should have performed a discectomy. Plaintiff further alleges that, without effective treatment, her condition deteriorated further causing her to undergo additional surgical treatment. The vice president for business and finance recommends approval. I concur.
By consensus, the trustees approved of the recommendation as submitted, formal action to be taken subsequently when the board convenes in open meeting.
SPECIAL EXECUTIVE SESSION
(2) President Ikenberry asked for a meeting with the members of the board only in attendance, along with Secretary Thompson. At this meeting he advised the trustees that another university was attempting to recruit Vice President Bazzani. To attempt to end this activity, the president asked the board to support him in discussions with Dr. Bazzani that might well include an offer for a salary increase.
By consensus, the board authorized the president to negotiate to retain key administrative staff.
