U. of Tenn. Fires Judicial Officer Amid Investigation of Improper Relationships

The University of Tennessee at Knoxville has fired the director of its Office of Student Judicial Affairs amid an inquiry into whether she had improper relationships with athletes, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel. Jenny Wright, who had worked in the office since 2008, tried to step down from her post last week. But the university refused to accept her resignation, and the campus’s provost, Susan D. Martin, sent Ms. Wright a letter on Monday stating that she was being terminated for failing to comply with the investigation. Ms. Wright’s lawyer denied that his client had done anything improper.
