LSU, newspapers reach deal over search records

BATON ROUGE- LSU's governing board and two state newspapers have reached a temporary agreement about the records involved in the board's presidential search.

The documents - including resumes and information about 35 job candidates - will be turned over to Judge Janice Clark to comply with her order that the LSU Board of Supervisors produce the records.

But under the agreement, the documents will stay under seal.

That means The Advocate and The Times-Picayune won't get to see the records while LSU appeals Clark's ruling that the information is public record.

F. King Alexander was hired in March as the LSU System president and main campus chancellor.

The search committee, made up of mainly Board of Supervisors members, refused to release information about other candidates being considered for the job.
