A hearing has been reset in embattled University of Iowa Professor Gary Hunninghake’s petition to block the UI from releasing documents about the circumstances that led to his being put on paid leave.

A hearing has also been set for the Iowa City Press-Citizen’s application to intervene in the case.

Hunninghake has been on paid leave from the university since April 2010.

According to Chicago police documents obtained by The Daily Iowan last month, UI police had pursued a child-pornography investigation against Hunninghake; it ended without any charges being filed. During that time, he filed a false report with Chicago police about being stabbed.

The injunction hearing has been set for June 13, and the Press-Citizen’s intervention hearing has been set for April 29.
