Attorney General's Office Responds to CU Foundation Threat of Litigation

DENVER – The University of Colorado Foundation has served a statutory notice of claim against Colorado Attorney General John Suthers in his official capacity, and Brian Whitney, First Assistant Attorney General. Deputy Attorney General Jason Dunn issued the following statement:

“While the theory of alleged liability is difficult to comprehend, it is clearly frivolous and groundless. Any suit that is subsequently filed will be vigorously defended. The Attorney General will not be deterred from pursuing his responsibilities under Colorado law. The citizens of Colorado deserve a full accounting from the Foundation as to its use of taxpayer money and its use of contributed funds on behalf of a public university. The expenditure of Foundation funds on frivolous lawsuits should also be a matter of public concern.”

“The Attorney General’s office has not – and will not – comment on the contents of a sealed grand jury report that has not been made public by court order, and will not comment on communications between prosecutors and the grand jury.”
