Judge Tori Kricken heard arguments Tuesday over whether records related to the demotion of former University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols should be released to the public, and indicated she could soon issue a decision in the case.

At issue is the public’s right to examine the paper trail leading to the board of trustees’ decision not to renew Nichols’ contract, including any investigative reports regarding Nichols’ performance or conduct and associated financial records. The university has denied requests from WyoFile and the Casper Star-Tribune for those records and consistently declined to confirm whether such an investigation took place.
