"Kaler, meeting with reporters, acknowledged that the public may have been misled by the university’s repeated claims that it had been investigated, and cleared, by the state attorney general."
"'That was not a full-fledged attorney general’s investigation,' Kaler said. He said the attorney general’s office had merely helped the state Board of Medical Practice review a complaint against two U psychiatrists."
“'Was there an attorney general’s office investigation? The answer is no,' Kaler said.
