SC State trustees meet on day promised to deal with Elzey

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina State University trustees are scheduled to meet behind closed doors on the same day they promised to have more information about the fate of the school's suspended president.

The trustees are set to meet by phone at 5 p.m. Wednesday. The only item on the agenda is a private meeting to get legal advice.

At their last public meeting, trustees released a statement saying suspended President Thomas Elzey had hired a lawyer and set a Wednesday deadline to release more information about his status.

Then on Tuesday, Elzey sued the school for breach of contract and asked a judge to delay his potential firing. No ruling has been made.

Trustees are meeting as a bill to fire them all has been cleared for floor debate in the Senate.
