TV station drops lawsuit for U. of Missouri records

MISSOURI ‘ A lawsuit filed against the University of Missouri by Kansas City television station WDAF/Fox 4 was dropped in September.

The lawsuit claimed the university was in violation of the state’s sunshine law when it refused to disclose information from campus disciplinary proceedings involving violent crimes and non-forcible sex offenses occurring between 1996 and 1999.

The station is being sold, and ‘has no interest in pursuing the story,’ said Jean Maneke, attorney for the Fox station.
