Law firm: Informal meeting before Dunn ouster vote violates open meetings law

MURRAY, Ky. - There is more fallout over the Murray State University Board of Regents' decision not to renew President Randy Dunn's contract.

A Lexington law firm has sent a formal letter of complaint to board chair Contstantine Curris.

It says, in part, that an informal meeting before the vote included enough members to qualify as a quorum and was, therefore, in violation of Kentucky's open meetings laws.

The letter requests the matters that were discussed in that informal meeting be made public or that the action taken as a result of the meeting be declared null and void.  It also asks Curris explain, in writing, why the meeting at board member Sharon Green's home was lawful.

The letter came from James Deckard of the law firm Hurt, Crosbie and May".
