To: Novice G. Fawcett, President, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio
By: William B. Saxbe, Attorney General, January 6, 1967
Your request for an Attorney General's opinion reads in
pertinent part as follows:
Is it permissible for the Board of
Trustees to purchase insurance to cover
liability which might run: (1) to the
University, or (2) directly to the Board
of Trustees as a result of litigation based
on the theory that the University or a Uni-
versity employee negligently performed a
proprietary rather than a governmental func-
tion:
May the University purchase or make
available liability insurance which would
defend and insure its employees and other
representatives against personal liability
arising from their activities performed in
the scope of University employment or
University sponsored activity?
