$4.5M to Settle Football Whistle-Blower Case

$4.5M to Settle Football Whistle-Blower Case
February 16, 2011

The California State University System spent $1.87 million on legal bills related to a whistle-blower lawsuit that it settled last month (for $2.7 million) with David Ohton, formerly a football strength coach at San Diego State University, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Ohton's lawyer told the newspaper that said he initially offered to settle the case for an apology and his former coaching assignment -- with no money involved -- and that proposal was rejected. Ohton is leaving the university as part of the settlement. His suit focused on his demotion to other jobs, which he said was related to assistance he provided to a Cal State audit that was critical of spending practices in the athletics program at San Diego State.
