Something smells fishy here

Mark Rotenberg, the General Counsel for the U, has repeatedly claimed that the U was investigated and cleared of blame in the Dan Markingson case by the Minnesota Attorney General's office, but he has never provided evidence for the claim.  If Rotenberg is speaking truthfully, how do we explain this letter to Mary Weiss in 2005?  In that letter, Deputy Attorney General Michael Vanselow expresses his pleasure that Mary has found legal counsel to represent her, and he also states his willingness to work with her and Jim Gottstein to draft legislation addressing the systemic problems that contributed to Dan's death.  (Those efforts eventually resulted in "Dan's Law," which prohibits Minnesota psychiatrists from recruiting patients into psychiatric drug studies if, like Dan, they are under a commitment order.)
