Former University of Wyoming presidents asks to see records

LARAMIE, WY. (AP) — Former University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols has asked a judge to let her see records related to her removal that could be made public.

The Laramie Boomerang reports Nichols’ attorney, Megan Overmann Goetz, filed a motion Tuesday to intervene in a case in which several news organizations contend the university unlawfully withheld documents following the decision to demote Nichols to a faculty position.

No reason was given for the March decision, and university trustees have declined to answer questions about it.

In the motion, Goetz said that Nichols wasn’t aware that the university investigated her and doesn’t know why she was ousted.

Nichols isn’t seeking to block the release of the records at this point but wants to see them to before weighing in on their release.
