INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former Iowa Board of Regents president has filed another lawsuit against the Iowa Public Radio board over a meeting that he says was illegally closed to the public.
The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/11kfUDw ) Michael Gartner's second lawsuit names a slightly different group of board members who, the lawsuit says, met behind closed doors on Feb. 26, the day Iowa Public Radio officials voted to fire chief executive Mary Herrington.
Gartner first sued Iowa Public Radio and five board members on May 28. That lawsuit says a Dec. 13 meeting to discuss Herrington's performance was a violation of state public meeting rules. The second lawsuit says the Feb. 26 meeting where Herrington was fired also was improperly constituted.
Board representatives didn't immediately respond to messages on Wednesday.
