Myers President Richard Scaldini should be fired by a court-appointed receiver today.
Earlier this year, when we detailed Myers University's fall from grace
, the school's president, Richard Scaldini, sounded confident he could save the school. Months later, he's been arrested and is about to get fired.
A judge has appointed a receiver named Mark Dottore to take over the school while the court tries to broker its sale to the for-profit University of Northern Virginia. The judge will meet with both sides this afternoon. Dottore is expected to fire Scaldini this morning.
If you've got a stake in Myers -- in some ways we all do, right? -- and want more on Dottore, check out Scene's 2005 profile, "King Nothing."
Lots of accusations fly around, but it's an interesting look at how receivership works. -- Joe P. Tone
