Records in LSU presidential search not released

Updated:

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two Louisiana news organizations are asking a judge to punish LSU's Board of Supervisors for not releasing documents related the university's presidential search.

Lori Mince is an attorney representing The Times-Picayune/NOLA Media Group and The Advocate newspaper. She filed a motion Friday asking Judge Janice Clark to find the supervisors in contempt of court.

The filing comes 15 days after the judge ruled that LSU was violating the state Public Records Act by withholding names of 35 candidates considered for the presidency.

The university has argued in court that the only finalist was the person who got the job, F. King Alexander.

Jimmy Faircloth, LSU's attorney, filed notice Thursday that the university is appealing Clark's earlier ruling and asking her to suspend the ruling until the appeal is heard.
