Speaking of freedom of information

Posted By on Sun, Apr 5, 2009 at 8:36 AM

UALR Law prof Rick Peltz also solved a small mystery for me.

I mentioned to him my curiosity about a couple of recent attorney general opinion requests concerning the Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. They wondered whether they really had to reveal the faculty's public salaries in response to Freedom of Information Act requests. Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said that they, of course, were obligated to reveal how much public money they received. Heck, we even make basketball coaches reveal their pay.

Mystery apparently solved. Peltz's class assignments include requiring students to file Freedom of Information Act requests. One student chose to seek pay data for the faculty of the Walton College of Business. (Too bad the student didn't also seek the forms that disclose outside income. Those are sometimes quite interesting, too.)

Here, thanks to student intitiative and the FOI, is the list of faculty salaries at the Walton College of Business, just in case you might be interested.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
