Several media outlets have filed a lawsuit challenging the secret search for a new president of the University of Wyoming.
The Casper Star-Tribune, Wyoming Tribune Eagle and The Associated Press filed the lawsuit Monday in state District Court in Laramie.
The UW Board of Trustees has decided to not to release the names of any of the candidates it is considering to replace President Tom Buchanan, who is retiring next year.
Under the process the board has adopted, search committees would narrow candidates to five finalists and the board will then make a selection. The public would not hear any names until the board announced the new president in February.

The lawsuit contends that the public has a right to know the finalists for such a high-profile job.
