UNC settles football lawsuit with media

CHAPEL HILL, WTVD - UNC has reached a settlement with television affiliate ABC11 in Durham and other media organizations over records regarding the 2010 NCAA football investigation.

The university will turn over, among other records, unredacted transcripts of player interviews conducted during the investigation on Friday.

The university had argued the records were protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.    

The school also agreed to pay $45,000 in attorney fees.

The settlement ends a two year legal battle between UNC and the media including ABC11 over records we believe the public has a right to see.
