(Westfield, MA) — The lawyer for Westfield State University president Evan Dobelle is threatening to sue the school’s trustees if they vote to suspend him at Wednesday’s board meeting. Hartford lawyer Ross Garber said he’ll file a lawsuit in federal court accusing the trustees of violating Dobelle’s constitutional rights. Garber maintains the trustees conducted an illegal investigation into Dobelle’s questionable travel and credit card use. On Friday, state higher education commissioner Richard Freeland wrote to the trustees blasting Dobelle. Freeland says he’s planning to attend tomorrow’s meeting.
