Former University GC Gets a $430K Retirement Payout
When Michigan State University head lawyer Robert Noto — under fire for his leadership in the Larry Nassar sexual assaults scandal — retired in February, he did so with a generous payout worth more than $430,000, reports the Detroit Free Press. That’s more than a year’s salary for Noto.
Noto, who had been with the university since 1995, resigned about a month after MSU Trustee Brian Mosallam called for his immediate resignation.
Reporter David Jesse writes that Noto received:
- Six months of his $403,100 annual salary. That’s $201,550.
- Payment for 151 unused vacation days. That’s $234,110.
- The use of an university-owned car through Sept. 5. He also gets computer support from the university for the same time period.
