A University adjunct professor is

ing saga unfolding within the commu-
Jonathan Friendly, director of the
Master's Program in Journalism, filed
a lawsuit last week claiming that his
role in prompting a recent University
audit cost him his three-year contract.
During the last academic year, the
communication department was au-
dited because of allegations that the
HarryandHelenF. Weber, the Howard
R. Marsh Professorship in Journalism
and the Howard R. Marsh Center for
the Study of Journalistic Performance
endowments were being misspent.
"It was my actions that led to the
audit. I made sure that the audit took
place because the money was not being
spent the way the donors were told it
was being spent," Friendly said.
After his role in bringing the mis-
spending into the open, Friendly was
made aware that his full contract with
the University was notbeing renewed,
"According to University proce-

had tried to notify Huesmann and
Goldenberg of the misuse of the grant
funds, but the attempt was "futile."
Friendly then reported the misuse to
Regent Philip Power (D-Ann Arbor).
. In his report to Power, Friendly
assertedthatthe University should stop
using the funds in amanner contrary to
the original intent of the grantors.
Friendly said he told Power that the
misrepresentation of funds should be
rectified by the University.
The suit also alleges that
Goldenberg misrepresented the spend-
ing of the Marsh Fund in a letter to
Power declined to comment on liti-
gation pending against the University.
In response tohisinvolvement with
the auditors and his cooperation with
their investigation, Friendly claims the
that his three-year contract would not
be renewed and instead denied (him) a
renewal of his three-year contract to
which he was otherwise entitled."
In the lawsuit, Friendly also claims
that Goldenberg and Huesmann retali

This is not the typical custody battle.
This battle's arms include domestic violence,
teenage pregnancy, women's rights, health care,
an ever-growing men's rights movement and
educational value, all issues that have been
"hurled" across a Macomb County courtroom,
leaving no rock unturned in the search for justice.
But Judge Raymond R. Cashen said, "It's not
about all that."
For now, the 3-year-old daughter of Univer-
sity student Jennifer Ireland will remain in her
custody until Ireland can plan an appeal to the
recent decision giving custody to the child's fa-
ther, Cashen ruled Monday.
Two weeks ago, Cashen, a Macomb County
Circuit Court judge, awarded custody of Maranda
