The Battle Rages on at ORU

February 14, 2008

Attorney Gary Richardson is challenging Oral Robert’s University to publicize an audit done by the new chairman of the board of trustees. Richardson is representing several defendants against Oral Roberts university.

The Joplin Globe reports:

Mart Green, the Oklahoma City businessman who donated $70 million to the school and became chairman its new board of trustees last month, said Monday he didn’t have access to the report and didn’t know if it could be released publicly.

“We need to get more information from our legal team before we make that decision,” Green said in a statement issued through the university. “Like I said before, the results from the audit our family performed showed we could fully support ORU with our proposed changes.

Richardson questioned whether Green, had truly “seen everything” during the audit.

Meanwhile, Richard Roberts has requested that the entire lawsuit be dismissed. According to a report in the Tulsa World, Roberts claims two of the employees suing for wrongful termination were actually contract employees, and not eligible to sue for wrongful termination.
