(COLLEGE FIX) — A state university appointed a former state supreme court justice to conduct an internal investigation of several scandalous allegations at the school, but the university is refusing to say what relationship, if any, that judge may have with the institution.

Arizona State University recently commissioned an investigation into allegations made by former economics professor Brian Goegan, who claimed that some professors at the school were failing students on purpose and effectively charging students to turn in homework, all as part of a scheme with an educational corporation. Goegan was dismissed from his position after making the claims, though the school said he was let go for reasons other than the accusations.
