Some time ago, I wrote about a bogus complaint from Ted Roberge, the interim director of IT at UCI Housing.
I am a bit hesitant to put the actual complaint online at this point. However, it is a public document, as are all documents from public universities in California.
I had filed a California Public Records Act request to find out more about the discussions that went on before Mr. Roberge filed the complaint.
As has been my experience before, the university was less than forthcoming with the material. I asked for "all written and all email communication, as well as all meeting minutes and transcripts of all other verbal communication about the complaint, between UCI Housing personnel, UCI Dean of Students personnel, and UCI Student affairs personnel."
All I received (after a month) was a copy of the email with the complaint that Mr. Roberge sent to the Dean of Students' office, and a copy of my file at the Dean of Students' office, which again contained the complaint (and the outcome...), and yet another copy of the complaint.
The only gem was the email that Mr. Roberge sent, since it indicated that he had "discussed this at length" with his then superior, Bill Zeller:
As we discussed just the other day, I am attaching a document containing my allegations.
I have discussed this at length with Bill Zeller. Before we proceed with a formal process, Bill and I would like to meet with you to discuss this case. I will have our admin staff set up a meeting sometime next week if you are available.
Despite my explicit request for "all meeting minutes and transcripts of all other verbal communication about the complaint," I did not receive transcripts and meeting minutes of the discussions between Mr. Roberge and Mr. Zeller. I have filed another CA Public Records Act request for these documents.
Update: Housing is still stalling. Instead of the transcripts and meeting minutes I asked for, they provided an email sent 1 1/2 months later...
Looks like they indeed have something to hide.
