Chron to sue over closed UC meeting

The Chron says in today's issue that it will go to court to open a UC Regents meeting next week where the salaries of university officials will be decided. UC's "top management has been acting as if the university is a privately held company and it can spend money as it sees fit and make compensation decisions behind closed doors, with occasional rubber-stamp approval from the regents,'' said Chron lawyer Karl Olson. "But UC is a public trust, and its actions have to be taken openly.'' The Chronicle reported in November that the university compensated some highly paid employees more than it reported to the public.
