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.
