Board chairman Constantine Curris has denied allegations of an illegal meeting at board member Sharon Green’s house just prior to March 15th, when the board voted to accept close to $5M in recommended changes to MSU’s budget and voted against extending President Randy Dunn’s contract.

Lexington Attorney Jim Deckard requested an opinion from the Attorney General’s office. Curris says university business was discussed at the meeting, but no vote counting or collusion took place.

The opinion does not require the board to address Deckard’s request that the March 15th votes be declared null and void.
