Lawsuit: University of Texas Medical Branch secret meeting was illegal
Houston Chronicle, December 2, 2008
The University of Texas Regents violated state law by meeting in secret to authorize the layoff of 3,800 employees at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, according to a lawsuit filed by the Texas Faculty Association. The lawsuit accuses the regents of violating the Texas Open Meetings Act when they closed the doors to a meeting and decided to authorize the layoffs to help stem financial losses caused by Hurricane Ike.
