UW Asks Judge To Change Decision On Search

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A judge in Laramie is scheduled to hear arguments on whether the University of Wyoming can continue to conduct its search for a new president in secret.

UW and its Board of Trustees are asking District Judge Jeffrey Donnell at the Wednesday hearing to change his Jan. 23 ruling that UW release the names of finalists.

The state Legislature this session fast-tracked a new law that changes Wyoming’s open records and meetings law so that the selection of UW and state community college presidents can be closed to the public.

Several media outlets had filed a lawsuit challenging the decision by the UW trustees to hold a confidential search for a replacement for retiring President Tom Buchanan.

Donnell sided with the media, saying the finalist names should be made public.
