KY Attorney General: WKU Regents Broke Open Meetings Law

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - An opinion from the Kentucky attorney general's office says a January meeting by Western Kentucky University's Board of Regents violated the state open meetings law.

According to the AG's ruling, the board violated the Open Meetings Act when it discussed disbanding the men's soccer program and firing of coach David Holmes during a closed session.

Bowling Green's Daily News reports that during the Jan. 25 meeting, WKU athletics director Wood Selig briefed the board on the decision to fire Holmes.

The College Heights Herald, WKU's student newspaper, filed a complaint with Attorney General Jack Conway alleging the violation.
