RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A judge has ordered former University of North Carolina football coach Butch Davis to hand over records of calls made on his personal cell phone related to his job duties.
Superior Court Judge Howard E. Manning Jr. signed an order Wednesday ordering Davis to hand over his phone records, which had been requested as public records by numerous media organizations, including The Associated Press. Those requests had been rejected by the university, which has faced NCAA sanctions related to violations involving the football team while Davis was coach.
Manning's order gives Davis 30 days to hand over his phone bills that include records of calls made as part of his official job duties. The judge will allow the university to erase Davis' personal calls from the records.
