Embattled University of Iowa Professor Gary Hunninghake has asked a judge to amend his case against the UI.

According to court records, Hunninghake is seeking to include the Cedar Rapids Gazette to the list of media organizations to which the UI can’t release his records.

Hunninghake has been on paid leave since April 2010. In December 2010, he filed a petition to prevent officials from releasing documents related to any investigation related to him. According to Chicago police documents obtained by The Daily Iowan, UI police had pursued a child-pornography investigation against Hunninghake, though it ended without charges being filed. During that time, he faked his own stabbing in Chicago in April 2010.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen and Associated Press are included in the petition. The Daily Iowan has also filed requests for similar documents related to Hunninghake.
