Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has concluded that Suffolk University didn't break the law, but also didn't follow its own rules when it authorized contracts with a trustee's lobbying firm, The Boston Globe reported. The newspaper reported last year on questions raised by the university awarding a contract to the trustee's firm at the same time the board was approving generous contract provisions for the president. While Coakley said that she found no legal violations, she stressed that she looked only at that issue, not whether the arrangements were in the best interests of Suffolk.
