The Regents of the University of California and Dr. Christian Head today reached a settlement in a civil case he brought against the University last year. The case presented difficult issues of alleged discrimination and retaliation that were strongly contested.

The University acknowledges that in June 2006 during an end-of-year event, an inappropriate slide was shown. The University regrets that this occurred. The University does not admit liability, and the parties have decided that the case should be resolved with a mutual release of all legal claims. The matter was settled to the mutual satisfaction of the parties.
