Federal Judge Agrees to Sale of Former FSU Administrator's Bridgeport Home

Posted: Updated:

U.S. District Court Judge Irene M. Keeley has approved a civil motion filed in federal court for the sale of the Bridgeport home of former Fairmont State University Vice President and Chief Information Officer, David Tamm.

Authorities served a search warrant on the 102 Rosewood Court home in April in connection to an ongoing investigation. Tamm was placed on administrative leave from FSU on January 28.  When contacted on July 30, FSU Spokeswoman Ann Booth said Tamm was no longer employed at the university. Investigators allege that Tamm participated in a four-year scheme to commit mail and wire fraud by using state funds to buy items and sell the items for his own benefit. He hasn't been formally charged.

The house was purchased and the proceeds from the sale of the house have been deposited into an interest-bearing escrow account maintained by the United States Marshals Service, according to court filings. If formerly charged and convicted, the money from the sale of house would be forfeited to the U.S. government. If Tamm is not formally charged and convicted, he will receive the funds upon completion of the civil action by the court.
