A U.S. Army War College spokeswoman says no information will be released about an investigation into plagiarism allegations against Sen. John Walsh until the process is complete.

Spokeswoman Carol Kerr made her comments to The Associated Press as the Carlisle, Pa., college's academic review board took up the investigation Friday.

The New York Times in July found the Montana Democrat used others' work without attribution in a 2007 research paper required for a master's degree.

Walsh had the opportunity to appear before the board or submit documentation in his defense. Walsh spokeswoman Andrea Helling referred questions to the college, and Kerr declined further comment.

The board's findings will be reviewed by the Department of Defense's inspector general, and the decision on whether punishment is warranted will be up to the college.
