A state appeals court says UW-Oshkosh must release records related to a misconduct investigation involving a business professor.
A reporter with the student newspaper filed an open records request in March of last year for a complaint against Willis Hagen and documents from an investigation.
Hagen was a business professor who suddenly stopped teaching his classes earlier that year. Hagen sued to block the release, saying personnel records are exempt from Wisconsin’s open records law.
A Winnebago County judge ordered the documents released and the appeals court upheld that decision.
