Michigan State University continues to produce an endless stream of controversy.

Jones Day lawyers James R. Wooley and Louis P. Gabel, after dozens of interviews and months of investigation, released its 13-page findings in June 2017 and declared Dantonio and his staff did nothing wrong, but did suggest Blackwell didn't handle the situation by way of proper protocol when he learned about the party.
