Overtime Suit Leads to Charges of Admissions Favoritism, Extortion
January 12, 2010

A former reunions campaign official who is suing Cornell University in a dispute on overtime payments threatened to release e-mail messages that he says show the university will admit mediocre students in return for certain levels of contributions, The Ithaca Journal reported. The employee's former lawyer outlined the issue in a letter to Cornell, suggesting that release of the e-mails would result from failure to resolve the overtime dispute. Cornell responded by saying that the letter "appears to constitute extortion" and adding that the employee was covered by a confidentiality agreement he signed when working at the university. A spokeswoman for the university said she couldn't comment on the case while it was in litigation.
