Editorial: CU regents waste money with appeal

Daily Camera (Boulder): It was clear last year when the University of Colorado regents named Mark Kennedy the sole finalist for the CU president job that they failed to follow Colorado law, which calls on the Board of Regents to publicly release a list of finalists — plural.

Don’t take our word for it. The Camera sued for release of information about the finalists, and last month Denver District Court Judge A. Bruce Jones ruled in the paper’s favor. “The Court concludes that six individuals were ‘finalists’ for the position,” Jones wrote. “Frankly, it is difficult for this Court to avoid concluding that the Board’s interpretation is designed to justify a predetermined outcome, rather than to align with the statutes.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, and that should have been the end of it.
