Jones Day successfully defended Gene Harris, the former Columbus City Schools Superintendent, in a data scrubbing case. Following an exhaustive two-year investigation by federal, state, and local authorities into allegations of grade manipulation and changes to attendance data to reflect improved student performance, Ms. Harris was cleared of the most serious charges. She agreed to enter a no contest plea to a second degree misdemeanor to resolve the matter. She was sentenced to community service and one year of non-reporting probation.
