LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A veteran compliance officer at the University of Louisville has resigned and accused President James Ramsey and other officials of interfering with his duties of enforcing conflict of interest rules.

News outlets report that Robin Wilcox, a deputy compliance officer who worked 10 years at the university, filed a whistleblower lawsuit Monday against Ramsey and the university.

During a board meeting Tuesday, several trustees asked for a no-confidence vote. But Ramsey supporters objected, saying the proposal wasn’t on the agenda. The motion will be heard at the next board meeting April 20.

Ramsey said after the meeting he didn’t think the trustees backing the no-confidence motion were acting professionally.

University spokesman John Karman says the university typically doesn’t comment on pending litigation and hasn’t had time to review the lawsuit.
