Judge Won't Block A&M Trustees
(2008-07-23)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A judge has refused to block four Alabama A&M University trustees from serving on the board.

Circuit Judge William Shashy asked attorneys Tuesday to present examples of Alabama law that support their arguments within five days, but he isn't expected to issue a ruling for several weeks. Attorney Troy Massey is suing Gov. Bob Riley and his appointees because the Senate Confirmations Committee unanimously rejected their nominations in May.

David Slyman Jr. of Huntsville; Leroy C. Richie of Birmingham, Mich.; Mayor Edward E. May of Bessemer and the Rev. Willie Clyde McNeil of Chatom will serve on the board until their nominations are considered by the committee when it meets again next year.

Riley reappointed the four in June after the Legislature had adjourned.
