CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) A person with knowledge of the investigation says North Carolina has received a new Notice of Allegations from the NCAA outlining violations connected to the school’s long-running academic fraud scandal.

This jumpstarts a case that has been stalled in a procedural limbo since August.

The person spoke Monday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because UNC hasn’t made a formal statement about the second notice’s arrival. The person declined to comment on changes contained in this document compared to the notice sent last May.

That first document hit the school with five potential top-level violations, including lack of institutional control. UNC had 90 days to respond, but that process paused in August when the school reported additional information to the NCAA for review.
