An Iowa assistant attorney general of Iowa is trying to stop former University of Iowa radiology Professor Malik Juweid’s from trying to represent himself, according to online court documents.

Assistant Attorney General George Carroll cites an instance in which Juweid represented himself during an internal hearing, and Juweid “had to be stopped repeatedly” because of his treatment of witnesses and other abusive actions.

Juweid has previously requested to depose UI President Sally Mason himself in connection to a lawsuit he filed against her, the UI, and other parties.

The UI fired Juweid on Aug. 24. Juweid filed the suit in May 2011, contending that officials retaliated against him for speaking out in his department about what he labeled discrimination against Arab Americans and the medical mistreatment of children.

Juweid’s deposition is scheduled for Oct. 30, but according to the document, Juweid wants delay this. A previous court decision required Mason to be deposed within the same week of Juweid’s deposition.
