Rosenstein’s suspension lifted one month after alleged unauthorized videotaping

By Andrea Flores, Assistant Daytime News Editor

Following a month of paid administrative leave, Jay Rosenstein’s suspension has been lifted.

The College of Media professor confirmed the fact in an email statement.

“I knew all along I would be totally vindicated,” Rosenstein said. “The whole thing was garbage from the beginning, nothing but an act of political revenge.”

Rosenstein was arrested for unauthorized videotaping at a basketball game Jan. 22, but he was later released and not charged. The University responded by placing him on paid administrative leave. Rosenstein denied the accusations.

“I would like to especially thank my dean, Wojtek Chodzko-Zajko and department head CL Cole for their unfailing support throughout this nonsense ordeal, as well as so many others who know well the kind of person that I am,” he wrote.
