I’ve just gotten off the phone with University of Minnesota Board of Regents Chairwoman Linda Cohen, who told me she’s not expecting to get the second opinion (the outside one) on the Steve Sviggum matter till Monday.
So she might not make a decision till then — at the earliest — on what to do.
I’ll see if things change tomorrow, but that’s how things look for now.
