Trial date set for Calif. State trustees

A California judge ruled that a lawsuit alleging California State trustees held an illegally closed-door meeting to discuss hiring former Chancellor Barry Munitz may proceed to trial, according to the Associated Press.

Munitz was hired and is now teaching an English class at California State University, Los Angeles. John Travis, president of the California Faculty Association, filed the lawsuit in May, and it seeks to determine whether the trustees acted illegally by violating California’s open meetings laws.

The non-jury trial is set for Jan. 11.
