Wardle’s conduct cost the UW System $25,000 in legal fees.

According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, that figure was the maximum agreed-upon total between the law firm of Godfrey and Kahn.  The actual total in legal fees for the six-week investigation would have been $42,338 had no cap been set.

Wardle was served with his formal letter of reprimand on Tuesday.  That letter was part of the sanctions taken against Wardle following the investigation.
