OSU seeks to seal records of fired professor


CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – Attorneys for Oregon State University have asked a judge to seal the termination records of a faculty member while he reviews the university’s actions to determine if the firing was fair.

The Gazette-Times reports the motion was filed this week in the case involving toxicology professor Morrie Craig.

He was terminated on Oct. 30 after a faculty committee found he had bullied two students and had sexually harassed a student and faculty member.

Craig filed a petition in Benton County Circuit Court for a review of his case. Judge Matthew Donohue granted his request and directed the university to restore Craig to his job for now.

He also ordered OSU to provide the termination records to the court by Jan. 5.

An OSU spokesman said the university will comply with that order, but its legal team has taken steps to seal details of Craig’s dismissal.
