Judge: UI Did Not Violate Records Law
IOWA CITY (AP) -- A judge says the University of Iowa did not violate the public records law when it allowed a doctor to delay release of a settlement deal showing he was allowed to resign after a personnel dispute.
Judge Douglas Russell ruled Tuesday that the university acted in good faith in 2011 when it gave John Chaloupka time to seek an injunction to challenge the document's release, which had been requested by The Associated Press. The ruling means the university doesn't have to pay the AP's attorney's fees.
It took two years and two court orders for the AP to obtain the document, which showed Chaloupka received his $380,000 salary for a year after he was removed as director of the university hospital's neurointerventional radiology division and transferred to a non-clinical job.
