No written evidence for allegation that Baldwin falsified expense reports

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There is no written evidence to prove one of the allegations against the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in a sexual discrimination lawsuit.

Back on January 12th, NewsChannel 11 reported that Clare Miers filed a lawsuit, saying she was forced to resign as Communications Director of the Health Sciences Center.

One of the allegations she raised is that former President John Baldwin created false expense reports to make it look like the two were having an affair. Her lawsuit also says she believes he was under investigation. Miers claims that the false rumors of the affair created a hostile environment.

NewsChannel 11 made an open records request for copies of any correspondence that would confirm or deny allegations that Dr. Baldwin is under investigation for submitting false expense reports. On Tuesday, NewsChannel 11 received written confirmation from the Health Sciences Center that "no such documents exist."

Baldwin resigned September 18th 2009, citing "personal reasons" according to an official statement. However, he is still on staff as a professor in the Department of Surgery and an advisor to the Texas Tech University System for Health Affairs. His current salary is $386,166.66, as compared to his salary of $662,400.00 when he was President.

Texas Tech HSC is paying $80,000 to Academic Search Inc. for assistance in finding candidates for Baldwin's replacement as President.
