Settling Pepper

Among the various items on the Regents agenda in September is a review of litigation affecting UC. Included is a tentative settlement of the UC-Davis pepper spray incident. Another bit of litigation from the "occupy" demonstrations at Davis involving a bank branch there is also up for discussion.

The Japanese Garden litigation is on the list as is the UCLA lab fire incident involving a faculty member being prosecuted by the local DA (and defended by the university).  And there is a lawsuit arising from demonstrations at Berkeley.

The full list is at but note that all of this discussion will take place in closed session.  Assuming the pepper settlement is approved, it will be made public.

A story on the pepper settlement can be found at:
