A state district judge warns the LSU Board of Supervisors that it now faces additional sanctions - including possible jail time - if it doesn't immediately comply with her more than four-month-old order to make public the records of its secret presidential search.
The board's $500 fine per day for noncompliance currently stands at about $59,000.
Following an open court hearing and private conference Monday, Judge Janice Clark ordered the board's attorney, Jimmy Faircloth, and lawyers to return to her courtroom Tuesday so she can determine whether the board intends to comply with her April 30 order.
Faircloth said the board intends to appeal Clark's April order and should not have to comply until higher courts have spoken.
