The University of Missouri Law School dean is stepping down, but will take on another faculty role at the law school.
Dean Gary Myers announced Friday that he's resigning effective Aug. 14. Myers was named in a lawsuit filed Wednesday against Myers and the university over a public-records request.
In the suit, former Republican Rep. Kevin Elmer claims associate professor Josh Hawley conspired with Myers to keep Hawley's school emails private. Hawley is running for attorney general and faces an Aug. 2 Republican primary.
