Board members want specific charges in probe

Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The three Lafayette Parish School Board members who do not support an investigation of Superintendent Pat Cooper have asked their fellow members to give their reasons for hiring an attorney to lead the inquiry into allegations against him. 

The Advocate reports board members Shelton Cobb, Kermit Bouillion and Mark Cockerham ask other board members Tuesday to disclose the charges they want an attorney to investigate. They say it is required by a state law related to special counsel resolutions. 

The resolution passed muster with the Attorney General's Office, which gave its approval on May 13, about a week after the board approved and submitted it to the state office for review. The board approved a request to hire special counsel for an investigation of Cooper's management decisions.
