Dan Gerlach

Dan Gerlach at his introductory press conference after first being named interim chancellor.


On Friday evening, public documents from Womble Bond Dickinson (US) LLP, were released regarding East Carolina University’s former Interim Chancellor, Dan Gerlach.

“This Report concludes that the specific allegations contained in the Emails (from John Q Public) are largely false,” the document said.

Womble Bond Dickinson (US) LLP were investigating the claims made about Gerlach. The investigation into Gerlach began when he was pictured at Club 519 on Sept. 25 with (the “blue-shirted woman”) where allegations of sexual assault began.

A third email sent by John Q Public alleges that the pictured woman was a known prostitute, the document said. According to the document, members of the UNC System office, Interim President William Roper and ECU Board of Trustees received emails from John Q Public. The recipient list of the email has been deleted, the document said.
