Mary Easley To Challenge Dismissal From NC State

An attorney for former first lady Mary Easley says she is appealing North Carolina State University's decision to fire her.

Marvin Schiller said in a letter the university released Tuesday that Easley hasn't been provided a copy of the grievance procedures. He complained about the unclear grievance process and noted that it does not appear to apply to her situation.

Interim Chancellor James Woodward said in a statement that he terminated Easley's contract because funding problems forced the
university to cut many of the programs she was operating. He said
Easley can pursue "pursue whatever grievance process or legal
action she now deems appropriate."

Federal investigators have requested documents that detail Easley's hiring at N.C. State.

    I am at a loss for words. She is definitely a piece of work. I think that she REALLY feels that she is entitled to that madeup job!! No thanks necessary.

    Ya'll are very sad people....sure alot of other people have lost jobs but did they have a contract..there is a difference. When is everyone else going to be investigated? I am sure he was a fine governor when he was in office but now that he is not...different story line. How about Beverly someone going to investigate her and her staff or family members too...?

    There is no shame. The Easley's are making a mockery of our great state and a fine University.

    More wasting of taxpayers money. Some people just don't get it. We already are making less and people are losing homes, jobs, cars, etc. and she want's to contest her excessive salary. Can't she tell by the ones that have already resigned their post that it was wrong. Lady stop wasting our money.

    She's evidently so arrogant she can't read the exit sign over the door. Go on while you can, old girl. Hopefully, Bev won't be far behind you.
