CarolinaCast: The Daily Tar Heel Sues the Board of Governors

By David Saff

The Daily Tar Heel has filed a legal complaint against UNC’s Board of Governors. The paper is claiming the board violated the N.C. Open Meetings Law when it approved a settlement with the Sons of Confederate Veterans. In the settlement, UNC agreed to give the Silent Sam Confederate Monument to the group along with $2.5 million in a trust for the statue’s preservation. In a separate agreement, the Board paid the group $74,999 in exchange for them agreeing to limit campus protests.
