On Sept. 8, the UC Board of Regents concluded its jury trial with Aon Hewitt, which provided management consulting services to the University of California during the development of the UC Student Health Insurance Plan.

The university first filed a lawsuit against the firm Oct. 1, 2013, seeking to reclaim $57 million in deficit within the span of two years, citing “grossly negligent or reckless” consulting services.

Pretrial preparations took place throughout August at the Rene C. Davidson Alameda County Courthouse, and a civil jury trial was underway by Aug. 31.

The court, counsel and jury were all present in open court Sept. 8 when the jury trial officially came to an end, according to the official case record. The Board of Regents informed the court that it had reached an agreement with Aon Hewitt, and a compliance hearing has since been scheduled for Nov. 10.
