Southern University stands by decision to fire Dumas
BATON ROUGE - The Southern University Board of Supervisors say they made the right decision after voting to uphold the firing of former Vice Chancellor Brandon Dumas.
Last week, Dumas filed a lawsuit saying his firing was a violation of due process according to court documents.
Southern stands by their procedure, saying Dumas was provided with the "appropriate notice of termination."
Dumas was abruptly suspended in June following a week of controversies which included a sex tape on the internet that purportedly involved a Southern administrator and an underling. Days after the video was posted online, Southern was warned in a separate situation that it could lose its accreditation.
Dumas was also connected to controversies involving the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging, situations profiled numerous times by WBRZ.
