There is more detail on the Katehi matter in a local Davis newspaper.* But it would seem that the goal of Katehi and her reps is to be allowed a graceful exit rather than have an investigation provide grounds for firing. Note that Katehi is technically still chancellor, although "suspended." A compromise alternative to marching through an investigation and then to litigation would be for Katehi to resign as of, say, June 30 - we are almost there anyway - and for UCOP to come up with some statement that while Katehi showed poor judgment, she accomplished good things for the campus. Katehi has already acknowledged poor judgment.
