HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Defendants in a lawsuit brought against William Carey University have hired attorneys and asked for more time to respond to a terminated professor’s complaint.

The Hattiesburg American report (http://hatne.ws/2deCU3j) Daniel Browning filed suit against the university claiming his April firing was a breach of conflict and intentional infliction of emotional harm.

The 59-year-old Browning filed suit against the university President Tommy King and the board of trustees in Forrest County Circuit Court.

University attorney J. Randall Patterson asked Tuesday for additional time to respond to Browning’s complaint - a motion that was unopposed by Browning’s lawyer Michael Adelman of Hattiesburg. Patterson asked for an extension through and including Oct. 25.

Browning worked at William Carey for 26 years. He was granted tenure in 1996.
