CASPER, Wyo. (Casper (Wyo.) Star-Tribune) — University of Wyoming lawyers have requested multiple changes to the state’s public records law after losing a legal effort to shield the circumstances surrounding the demotion of the university’s former president last year.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that the university council is seeking to implement a number of exemptions to the law including better language defining what qualifies as a personnel file.

The memo also requests clarification on what is determined as a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy under the law.

The memo was made public this week.

The Joint Judiciary Committee expects to address the issue further in August.
