Texas Tech Scandal: The Ugly Truth
Even in the wake of the massive Texas Tech University women’s basketball scandal, TTU’s Senior Associate General Counsel Ronny Wall continues to fight to keep some of the ugly truth a secret.
Ronny Wall is now stalling the release of the personnel file of former Texas Tech women’s basketball strength and conditioning coach Ralph Petrella.
Ralph Petrella resigned at the end of the basketball season and is now accused of harassing five players on the women’s basketball team.
In her response to Ronny Wall’s ongoing abuse of the Texas Public Information Act, Dolcefino Consulting Director of Operations Kelsey Galbraith questioned Wall via e-mail, asking: “Are you just ignoring the purpose and spirit of the Texas Public Information Act like Texas Tech ignored the Marlene Stollings issue?”
Ronny Wall fought for a year to keep the exit interviews of the basketball players from the public. It was those interviews that blew the scandal wide open a few weeks ago. They are an ugly review of what was allowed to go on in Lubbock for two years.

RonnyWall has been busted twice for overcharging for public records in the Dolcefino Consulting legal battle. Tech has been trying to block the planned sworn testimony of Ronny Wall on the subject of who destroyed records relating to the firing of former head football coach Mike Leach.
In both cases public records were released accidentally. The records accidently released in the Dolcefino Consulting case expose the shoddy investigation, the manipulation of sworn testimony, and the conspiracy to cheat Leach out of $2.5 million dollars.
The legal fight over the Leach records has been going on for two and a half years and Dolcefino Consulting has already spent a quarter of a million dollars to expose the unfair firing of Coach Leach. Austin Judge Paul Davis is set to rule next month on a request to punish Tech for refusing to let us put Ronny Wall under oath.
