Rutgers University has filed suit in state court to recover an estimated $1 million from a group of firms and the estate of a former state official for grants it claims were fraudulently obtained through a scheme operating out of the state vocational-education division.
The university has been joined in the suit by the state attorney general's office, which has been investigating allegations that federal grants awarded to the state were improperly channeled to companies with ties to state vocational officials. (See Education Week, Jan. 20, 1988.)
