John Doe, an anonymous employee of the University of Iowa, has filed a lawsuit against the university to keep his records confidential.

On Jan. 31, the Associated Press requested copies of certain employment agreements involving employees of the UI Carver College of Medicine.

The six agreements requested were those of John Doe, Anne Sullivan, Christopher Welsh, Theodore Donta, Jill Meadows, and Toshiki Itoh.

UI spokesman Tom Moore said the UI didn’t do anything wrong by releasing the documents. It was complying with the state code by cooperating with the open-records law, he said.

“Under the open-records law, Doe was informed that there was a request for the records that involved his case,” Moore said.

Moore said Doe was the only person of the six to object to the information being released.
