(Westfield, MA) — Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle has filed a federal lawsuit claiming he was suspended from his job without due process. Last week the embattled president was placed on administrative leave amidst an investigation into his questionable spending habits. The suit names three trustees, the state’s Higher Education Commissioner, the school’s auditing firm, and others. Dobelle accuses Board chairman John Flynn and Commissioner Richard Freeland of conspiring to get rid of him in a “guerrilla war for control of the university.”
