Murray State Board of Regents found in violation of Open Meetings Act
MURRAY, Ky. - Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway ruled that Murray State University's Board of Regents violated the Kentucky Open Meetings Act when it held an "informal social gathering" on March 14.
The meeting was held at the home of Regent Sharon Green the night before the meeting during which the board voted not to renew President Randy Dunn's contract.
Attorney James L. Deckard filed the initial complaint last month, stating "Kentucky law prohibits the Board from discussing Murray State University business at such a meeting and further prohibits the Board from meeting without notice to the public."
