Morrison: How long will he stay on the UA board? .
NOW THAT AKRON lawyer and University of Akron trustee Jack Morrison has been convicted of two of the 7 ethics charges against him, the next question: Will he do the honorable thing and resign from the Board of Trustees? Until the court ruled against him today, his apologists had argued that he shouldn't have to leave the board because he hadn't been convicted of anything. Well, now you know. What will it be? Will he continue to be indifferent to the discomfort of the other trustees? My hunch is that he will now delay any decision about his relationship with the University , using as an excuse that the conviction will be appealed. God knows how long that would drag out a festering situation for the University.
