December 18, 2015
I have today engaged a law firm to conduct an independent investigation of the concerns that led me to place three members of senior management on administrative leave last week. The firm is Curley, Hessinger & Johnsrud LLP, of New York and Philadelphia, and the work will be carried out by Michael A. Curley, the firm’s senior partner, and partner Lindsay Vest. The Curley firm has begun a review of the concerns that have been raised, and is expected to brief me about its plan for the investigation early in the new year.
