The Advocate reports the praise given to Brad Ott by State Civil Service Commissioner Scott Hughes in advance of the State Civil Service Commission’s June 5th 4-3 vote to reject the privatization contracts for 4 LSU Charity system hospitals. After lodging an immediate appeal with the Commission, LSU won a 3-2 Commission reversal June 10, 2013 of its rejection on the same contracts just five days before.
