SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City Press Citizen filed its own petition in the lawsuit between the University of Iowa and embattled professor Gary Hunninghake.

Hunninghake, a University of Iowa professor, has been on paid leave from the university since April 2010. In December 2010, He filed a petition to prevent officials from releasing documents regarding his child-pornography investigation or leave. According to Chicago police documents obtained by The Daily Iowan last month, UI police had pursued a child-pornography investigation against Hunninghake, though it ended without charges filed. During that time, he faked his own stabbing in Chicago, in April 2010.

A hearing on the petition is scheduled for April 1.
