Meyers Nave Investigation Report for the San Jose Evergreen Community College District
Jayne Williams, managing principal of Meyers Nave, and Terry Roemer, employment law specialist, were retained by San Jose Evergreen Community College District Board of Trustees to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations of financial and administrative improprieties by Chancellor Rosa Perez.
In November 2009 these allegations were reported in three KGO news telecasts and a San Jose Mercury News article. Because of the significant public interest and attention generated by these news reports, the District Board decided that an independent investigation should be conducted and that the investigation report should be made available to the public, to the extent legally permissible. The investigation team, led by Jayne Williams, conducted a five-month investigation into the various allegations and produced a comprehensive report with findings, recommendations and conclusions that was released by the District to the public at a news conference on May 21, 2010.
Meyers Nave routinely represents public agencies in high profile internal investigations such as this investigation for San Jose Evergreen Community College District and the investigation conducted by attorneys Jayne Williams and Kimberly Colwell on behalf of BART into the actions of all the officers present during the New Year’s Day shooting death of Oscar Grant.
