A lawyer for former Oshkosh chancellor Richard Wells says others in the U-W System knew he was using public funds to back up school foundation loans for public projects, and they did not object. Attorney Raymond Dall’Osto also says Wells acted within his job parameters and did nothing for his own gain. Dall’Osto was responding to a lawsuit filed by the University of Wisconsin system that accused Wells and a former vice chancellor of acting illegally by making the fund transfers. Dall’Osto also called on the U-W system to provide clearer evidence of the money transfers between the school and its foundation.
