LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University of Kentucky president Lee Todd
and athletics director Mitch Barnhart are scheduled to give
depositions next month in former basketball coach Billy Gillispie's
lawsuit against the school.
Court notices filed Thursday in Dallas by Gillispie's attorneys
say Todd will be deposed on Sept. 21, followed by Barnhart on Sept.
23. The legal filings also request undisclosed documents from Todd
and Barnhart.
Gillispie sued the University of Kentucky Athletics Association
in federal court in Dallas on May 27, claiming fraud and breach of
contract stemming from his March firing. The university has
countersued in Lexington.
The legal filings come on the same day Gillispie was arrested in
Lawrenceburg on suspicion of driving under the influence of
alcohol. He has pleaded not guilty.
