WVU closes books on Bresch degree scandal

MORGANTOWN (AP) — Nearly five years after a degree scandal rocked West Virginia University and forced its president and others to resign, the case is officially closed.

Special Academic Integrity Officer Nigel Clark says there will be no further action against anyone involved in altering transcripts, creating grades and awarding an advanced degree to Mylan Inc. executive Heather Bresch.

She’s the daughter of former Gov. Joe Manchin.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Clark cited unreasonable delays in investigating complaints of misconduct against those involved.

Clark says those administrators have a right to due process and a timely resolution of the allegations.

He says his decision shouldn’t be seen as a comment on the validity of the underlying accusations.

Clark’s comments are in a letter to a professor who filed a complaint in 2008.
