Outgoing Dean B. Joseph White will
finish his second five-year term and
plans to work with Dolan in the transi-
tion. "I am extremely pleased and excit-
ed about Bob Dolan's accepting the
appointment as our next dean," White
said "I am confident he will provide us
excellent leadership and take the School
to the next level of achievement,"he said
in a statement.
White opted not to seek a third term at
the helm of the Business School, choos-
ing to take a leave of absence and then
return as a regular member ofthe faculty.
Dolan, a specialist in product pricing
and policy, will be in Barcelona, Spain,
on a visiting professorship until the end
of June. He would have served Harvard
Business School's Division of Research
as senior associate dean and director
beginning this summer. Dolan has
taught at Harvard since 1980. At Har-
vard, he was the chair of the MBA pro-
gram faculty from 1996-97, taught
marketing to senior executives in Har-
vard's Advanced Management Program
from 1990-95 and chaired Harvard's
marketing area from 1986-94. Dolan
taught at the University of Chicago's
business school from 1976-80.

causing public alarm.... Contrary to the
circuit court's reasoning whether police
officers are members of the public for
purposes of the statute is not the critical
inquiry here," they wrote.
Miranda Massie, the attorney for the six
defendants whose charges were reinstated,
promised an appeal of the court's decision
and said the results of other cases related
to the protest are indicative of the weak-
ness of the case against the defendants.
During the rally, police arrested 19
demonstrators. 15th District Judge
Ann Mattson dropped the charges
against nine people who were charged
with malicious destruction of property.
Ten others were charged with rioting.
Two were acquitted by juries and
another defendant's felony charge was
reduced to a misdemeanor.
"Our record involved in all the cases in
this witch hunt makes me very optimistic
that if we have to try the cases, we will
win," Massie said. "There was no riot on
May 9, 1998. The community members in
two separate juries have already spoken
and said there was no riot."
Massie said the gathering was nonvio-
lent and did not cause public alarm and
that minimal damage was sustained. "If
you are going to call a handful of broken
windows a riot, then there are quite a few
riots taking place," she said.
Massie added that she did not think
the Court of Appeals' decision to pro-
ceed with the case will be a popular
decision. "If they were to win, it
would be an extremely negative
development for the people of Ann
Arbor," she said.
The Washtenaw County Prosecutor's
Office was unavailable for connent.

"This conference call was the first
opportunity for the University to basical-
ly play it straight or choose to raise objec-
tions," said Cedric deLeon, president of
the Graduate Employees Organization,
which has joined the bus drivers' cause.
The University had the option of
either consenting to an election or argu-
ing against the motion. Officials stuck
with the latter option, stating the drivers
have not properly defined the communi-
ty of interest they are organizing behind.
Communities of interest should
encompass all jobs that are similar in
pay, hours and working conditions. The
question with the student bus drivers'
community is whether it is neglecting to
include similar University jobs, Universi-
ty spokeswoman Julie Peterson said in
"It is because of our interest in mair
taining productive and fruitful bargainin
relationships that [the University]g
raised the issue that the organization o
only a small fragment ofa much large
group of employees is not appropriate,
deLeon cautioned against making th
definition too broad. "A community o
interest should not be defined by virts
of the fact that we're all students rathe
than the status [of the employee], th
kinds of work, the levels of certifica
and the different pay scales should
taken into account," he said.
MERC is expected to reach a decisio
about the conflicting definitions of
community of interest after an officia
hearing set for the second week of June.

"Some people know how to use
Zypher, some people don't," said Sandy
Colombo, director of operations for the
University computing environment.
"Some alternatives are being explored.
We would like to discuss this with vari-
ous constituencies on campus."
The problem of privacy arouse when
issues of stalking by use of the finger-
ing system were reported to ITCS.
"The original computer networking
infrastructure was created openly" said
Kim Cobb, director of communications
for ITCS. "The few researchers using
the system trusted each other. Privacy
issues are raising more and more. As a
society, we need to deal with these
Many people have expressed concern
about the fingering system and the
amount of information it allows others to
"Usually it's an ex-boyfriend stalking a
female," Meyer said. "People don't usu-
ally take any legal action. That's part of
the problem is that they don't want to be
stalked, but won't press legal charges"
Situations reported, which according
to Colombo are often in the form of e-
mails, are then turned over to ITCS or
the Department of Public Safety.
Although ITCS maintains that thea
incidents occur, DPS said it did no
know of such incidents.
"We haven't had any reports wher
people have logged in to a comput
and then physically got there to f
someone else," said DPS spokeswoman
Since all logins, as well as fingeri
incidents, are recorded in logs adminis
tered by the University, the informatio
can be found for use as evidence i
"It's not currently monitored on a real
time basis, but when the information i
needed, you can get it," Meyer said.
However, since the individual bein
fingered is unaware, there have bee
complaints as to why the system has no

"You'd have to ask a question why
would some want that information, who
is not a system administrator, to find o
where they are," Colombo said. "When

them to know without people's knowl-
The fingering system will remain

sole locations - until either another
system is devised, or it is deemed a
sufficient solution to the privacy
