DTH files open meetings suit against Board of Governors


The DTH Media Corp., the parent company of The Daily Tar Heel, filed a legal complaint against the UNC System and Board of Governors Tuesday, claiming that the BOG violated the Open Meetings Law when meeting about the Silent Sam settlement. 

The UNC System entered into two agreements in November 2019 with the North Carolina Sons of Confederate Veterans. On Nov. 21, the system agreed to pay $74,999 to limit the SCV’s actions on system campuses. On Nov. 27, the system gave the SCV possession of Silent Sam and a $2.5 million trust for its preservation in a settlement agreement.
