ASU files suit over state audit

Posted: Updated:


Alabama State University has filed a lawsuit against a company that prepared a preliminary audit report that criticized the university's finances.
The lawsuit accuses Forensic Strategic Solutions of issuing a "false and misleading" report that the lawsuit says was intended to interfere with ASU's economic relationships with alumni, students and supporters.
Governor Robert Bentley hired the Birmingham-based company for $650,000 to perform the audit after former ASU President Joseph Silver questioned some contracts.  Bentley has said he plans to have every contract looked at.
FSS did not have an immediate response to the suit.
The suit seeks unspecified damages.
