Denny, regarding "The formal task force was created end of October. This task force involved outside legal counsel and conducted professional fact finding."
Who was on the task force, besides you and Patricio? What do you mean by "professional fact finding?" Regarding, "The official task force, set up by the Trustees, worked under the standards of keeping confidentiality, obviously. I thought this goes without saying, but I am explicating it." This is still ambiguous. Was the new task force expecting James to share information that was given to him on the understanding he wouldn't share it? As a general point, crises always start out messy. That you moved from an ad hoc inquiry to a formal one is perfectly normal. Characterising the initial attempt to understand the situation as "unprofessional" and the next (that excluded James) as "professional", if that's what you're doing, strikes me as a bit sly.
