UT System Board Rebukes Wallace Hall Again

Frustrated with his recent public comments, the University of Texas System Board of Regents has again rebuked outspoken member Wallace Hall.

In a special meeting Friday, the board voted to "express disagreement and disapproval" of recent statements by Hall, saying Hall doesn't speak for the board and that the continued public fighting needs to stop.

"I cannot remain silent when Mr. Hall engages in constant criticisms and accusations," said board Chairman Paul Foster.

Hall has clashed with leadership at the UT System and UT-Austin for years. Critics accused him of engaging in a witch hunt against former UT-Austin President Bill Powers. Hall submitted copious requests for information and has raised public questions about admissions and spending at the school. That prompted impeachment hearings in the Texas Legislature and a criminal review by a Travis County grand jury. The grand jury chose not to indict and the impeachment effort fell short.
