Young to receive $990k payout after MSU termination


Former Michigan State University Vice President and General Counsel Robert Young will receive nearly a million dollars after he was terminated by the school last week.

6 News obtained Young’s termination letter via a Freedom of Information Act request. The two-paragraph long letter, dated February 1, indicates Young was informed of his dismissal in person by Acting President Satish Udpa on that day. The full letter is below:

University Spokesperson Emily Guerrant told 6 News Young, a former Michigan Supreme Court justice, will receive $990,402 as payout for his contract. Cash equivelants to benefits are still being worked out.

Michigan State University has not given a reason for the termination. When Young’s dismissal was announced Friday, the university added Deputy General Counsel Brian Quinn will serve as Acting General Counsel.
