Internal report
released Friday
outlines UMHS
shortcomings
By ADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily News Editor
University administrators
have expressed concern after the
results of an internal investiga-
tion into former medical resident
Stephen Jenson's possession of
child pornography were released
to the public Friday.
University President Mary
Sue Coleman called the Univer-
sity of Michigan Health System's
six-month delay in reporting
the University's Department of
Public Safety that Jenson was
in possession of child pornog-
raphy a "serious failure on the
part of the institution." In a let-
ter to the campus community
on Friday, Coleman wrote that
University officials acknowledge
that the situation was handled
improperly and that University
officials hope the incident will
serve as a catalyst for strength-
ening campus security protocol
in the future. The report high-
lights information not previously
known to the public, including a
reportthatUMHS securityasked
DPS to use forensic resources to

examine a flash drive containing
the pornography, but DPS did not
return the voicemail.
Last May, a UMHS medi-
cal resident found a flash drive
containing images of child por-
nography plugged into a hospi-
tal computer in the residents'
lounge. The report notes she
opened files on the drive to
determine who owned it and
found Jenson's name. She left
work without reporting the inci-
dent and found that the flash
drive was removed the next day.
She then notified her supervi-
sor, the attending physician, who
notified the chair of the Medical
School Department Compliance
Officers.
On Dec. 2, Coleman was noti-
fied of the issue and asked the
University's Office of University
Audits to conduct an internal
review on Dec. 3. Regent Kath-
erine White (D-Ann Arbor),
chair of the University's Board
of Regents Finance, Audit and
Investment Committee was also
notified.
In the letter released Friday,
Coleman commended the medi-
cal resident who reported the
flash drive to hospital security,
notingthat she reported the inci-
dent "not once, but twice," a fact
that was previously not known.
"I want to apologize to her for
not properly investigating the

University plans
to build parking
structure in new
location
By TAYLOR WIZNER
Daily StaffReporter
The city of Ann Arbor and
the University announced
on Friday that construction
of the Fuller Road intermo-
dal transportation station will
not continue as designed due

JL !.l

to complications with federal
funding.
The University intends to
still continue to build a park-
ing structure, just no longer
on Fuller Road where the ini-
tial station was planned to be
built. The parking facilities
will likely be built somewhere
on medical campus, as officials
begin to newly conceptualize
the project.
Jim Kosteva, the University's
director of community rela-
tions, said the complications
with federal funds stemmed
from issues with a funding

match requirement. To qualify
for the match, an environmen-
tal analysis needs to be com-
pleted and the Federal Railroad
Association must sanction the
plan, Kosteva said.
"(The environmental analy-
sis) is an 18-month process at
a minimum," Kosteva said.
"Then you can start the clock
applying for the funds for the
station construction platforms
and other improvements. So
we, at the University, are sit-
ting here and we look at this as
almost an indefinite period of
time."

Since more than 500 posi-
tions were added at the new-
ly-constructed hospitals, in
addition to
additional room
for patients 51'1 &0
and visitors,
Kosteva said
the demand is i
too large to wait
for the federal
funds to be assigned.
"As much as we have alter-
native forms of transportation,
some people still need to rely
on individual transportation

GEO says it will
file an amicus
curiae brief
By RAYZA GOLDSMITH
Daily News Editor
Though the official hear-
ing before the administrative
law judge regarding a group
of graduate student research
assistants' unionization efforts
ended last Monday, a number of
groups are filing documents in
preparation for an extension of
the hearing process beginning
on Feb. 20,
On Thursday, Michigan
Attorney General Bill Schuette
and the Students Against GSRA
Unionization filed requests
with the administrative law
judge to call witnesses and

receive evidence. The Graduate
Employees' Organization - the
union representing graduate
students - plans to respond
today to the decision to allow
outside parties to produce evi-
dence by either filing an amicus
curiae brief, or another type
of motion, according to GEO's
communications chair Liz
Rodrigues.
There is no guarantee that
the requested witnesses will
be allowed to testify, because
the decision will be made at
the discretion of Julia Stern,
the administrative law judge
assigned to the case. However,
Stephen Raiman, a Rackham
student and SAGU founder,
said he is confident Stern will
allow the witnesses, including
himself, to testify.
