Former NC State Chancellor To See Grand Jury

The former chancellor of North Carolina State University is set to appear before a federal grand jury that's seeking details about former first lady Mary Easley's employment there.

Former Chancellor Jim Oblinger was subpoenaed last month, with federal investigators requesting access to all documents related to
Easley's hiring and benefits. Oblinger's attorney, Press Millen, said the chancellor has been asked to appear Wednesday morning at the federal courthouse in Raleigh.

Oblinger resigned last week as the university released e-mails showing that he had played a role in Easley's hiring. He said he did not recall his contribution until reading the e-mails and said the hiring involved no impropriety.

University trustees voted to fire Easley the day Oblinger resigned.
