the Downtown Advisory Committee,
and the downtown business
organizations are in favor of the plan.
A parking-exempt ordinance applies
to the district in which the building
would be located, and therefore people
using the facility would have to rely on
area surface lots and structures.
Dennis Serras was the only citizen
who spoke on the subject during the
publichearing devoted to the project.
He lauded the plan as a step toward
downtown revitalization and noted it as
a reversal of the shift of resources to
the Briarwood shopping mall area.
"I would hope people would like to see
Ann Arbor come back."

The report, published Monday by the

not suffer extensive tissue destruction
during the original sterilization.

Although the Judiciary consists of
seven faculty and seven student mem-
bers, only three from each group serve
on each individual case. The faculty
members are appointed by the LSA
Executive Committee and serve two-
year terms, while the student members
are selected by the LSA Student Gover-
nment for one-year stints.
The judiciary is charged with con-
sidering circumstances surrounding
each cheating case a professor or
student brings before it, deciding the
guilt or innocence of the accused, and
setting penalties in cases where the ac-
cused is found guilty.
In the 1977-78 academic year, 38 cases
of student academic dishonesty were
tried, with 18 such cases tried the
preceding year, and 19 the year before
LSA ASSISTANT Dean Eugene
Nissen said the case figures are low
because- professors often handle
questions of student dishonesty directly
with the individuals in question.
The judiciary gets the go-ahead to
deal with eheating cases after they are
determined to involve violations cited
under the Code of Academic Conduct.
The code, developed in 1973, contains
provisions for cases involving
plagiarism, cheating, and fabrication
of records and official documents.
Before accused students appear at a
hearing, they are given a "Manual of
Procedures," which explains the steps
their case will follow. The manual also
explains the appeals process, states the
legal rights of parties involved, and
lists the verdicts that could be taken.
BUT NISSEN said the manual isn't
always effective, and that he knows of
cases in which students had their
charges dismissed because of
technicalities within the manual.
"The procedure manual works
reasonably well," he said. "It was
never designed to be a legal document.
We don't pretend to imitate a court of
law. If that were the case, you could
punch a hole in every line, in every
thought of that document." The
manual, he added, is designed only to
provide students with "due process."
Actions ranging from a letter of
reprimand to permanent expulsion
from the University are among those
spelled out in the manual. But Nissen
said in the past year, the trend has been
towards stricter penalization.
"ONE OF THE complaints .lodged
against the judiciarya few years ago
was that the actions they took were too
light. I think there's a general shift
toward a more serious interpretation of
Bradwick agrees that, of late, the
judiciary has tightened up.
"I see the students in the appeal
procedure," he said, "and too often
they are surprised that they have
received a serious penalty - and that
makes us very uncomfortable."
WHEN AN appeal is requested, a
minimum of two students and two
faculty members sit on the board, with
Bardwick presiding. Students found
guilty after this step have no alter-
native but to face the consequences.
In addition to facing up to the penalty,
students have the violation recorded on
their transcript. In some instances, if
students have cleaned up their records,
they can have mention of the violation
erased from their transcript. But, as
Nissen explained, the students'troubles
