East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies are leaving empty-handed after trying to get information about LSU's search for a new president from university officials as part of a court order.
State District Judge Janice Clark ordered the local sheriff Tuesday to seize the information after university system officials refused to publicly release the documents per her April 30 order.
Deputies were en route to Clark's court later Tuesday to update her after they weren't given any documents from LSU.
A lawyer for the LSU Board has said the documents are in the custody of a Texas-based consultant hired by the university — and it wasn't immediately clear whether the local sheriff's office would have the authority to seize them.
