Wednesday on Lubbock's First News, Representative Charles Perry talked about investigation of the charges against University of Texas Regent Wallace Hall.

Perry said, "it's a conflict between the University of Texas system versus the trustees." The conflict is a result of Hall's request for  thousands of documents from the university via the Freedom of Information Act. The documents were requested in an attempt to find information that would allow impeachment of the powerful president of the university. The problem occurred when private student information was accidentally given to Hall along with the other documents. Perry observed that the situation "is beginning to damage, I think, the institution's reputation."

According to Perry, Hall has three different charges against him, one being the possible violation of a federal privacy law. Perry also noted the responsibility of the system that released the documents originally. Hall has not been subpoenaed yet, which Perry said is uncommon.
