Former BISD Superintendent files legal action against Attorney General to stop release of public records

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) -- Former Bryan ISD superintendent Dr. Tommy Wallis has filed a court order to stop the district from releasing additional documents related to his separation.

Wallis filed his court order in Travis County. The board said Friday that it prevents them from complying with the Texas Attorney General's directive to release more documents that have been requested by KBTX.

Bryan ISD Board of Trustees President Trey Moore, III said that the district was going to comply with the court order. In a statement sent out Friday afternoon, Moore went on to say that the board is eager to release the information.

"As a board, we have always been invested in being transparent with our community about how their district is governed. We are hopeful that the courts will ultimately allow us to release this information to the public," Moore said.

A hearing is scheduled in two weeks on the matter in an Austin courtroom.
