Here's a new Lansing State Journal article about the conflicts between MSU's lead attorney and the state AG's special prosecutor, William Forsyth. Relevant quotes:
"Furthermore," Forsyth wrote, "our concern that MSU might be improperly withholding information was heightened by an email produced by the University from Chairperson (Brian) Breslin to his fellow Trustees discussing non-privileged information and directing them to copy legal counsel on their response in order to 'protect client privilege.'"
"I must be sure that the University is not improperly shielding documents from the investigation under the guise of privilege," Forsyth wrote. "...(T)here are emails between William Strampel and Larry Nassar that have been identified as 'attorney-client privileged,' despite not having an attorney included on the email."
