Scottsdale Police: ‘No criminal conduct’ found in Greenburg investigation


An investigation into digital files linked to Scottsdale Unified School Board member Jann-Michael Greenburg has been found to have no criminal conduct, Scottsdale Police announced Dec. 2.

Sgt. Kevin Quon issued a press release stating Scottsdale Police Department had concluded its investigation into the allegations of Greenburg in regard to information contained on a Google Drive.

“It was determined that the drive contained opensource and/or public documents,” Quon said in the press release. “Therefore, it has been determined that no criminal conduct has been committed at this time that would be under the jurisdiction of the Scottsdale Police Department.”

Quon states that while the “Scottsdale portion” of this investigation is closed, detectives have met with the FBI and the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, briefed them, and provided them with a copy of the department’s investigation “for review in determining if any criminal acts might fall under their respective jurisdictions.”

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has also met with police detectives, Quon stated.

The Scottsdale Unified School District is still conducting its internal investigation based on its policies, Quon added.

    This doesn't end the investigations or the disputes. At the top of the list is the question of unauthorized access to and publication of the contents of that Google Drive folder.

    Next is the question of why the news media did not redact the names of those who had no idea that they were about to become embroiled in a dispute of this magnitude. Did the Independent seek the consent of the 47 people whose information was allegedly included before they were made part of the national shaming?

    It is highly likely that a couple of dozen people had no idea they were included in that folder and also had no idea that the four or more who were looking for a way to further their fight with the Greenburgs were about to use the Independent to make their personal lives part of a political battlefield.

    What were they all thinking? All of them. Not just one or two. It took a lot of bad decisions to make all of this happen.
