RENO, Nev. (AP) - The state attorney general's office is looking into whether the Washoe County School Board violated opening meetings laws after the arrest of a university professor who was denied entry to a meeting earlier this month.

Larry Dailey, who teaches journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, filed the complaint with the state last week

He told the Reno Gazette-Journal he plans to sue the district for a violation of his First Amendment rights.

Dailey was arrested on June 11 for violating a trespass warning given to him in February.

He tried to enter the school district's office several times during a board meeting but was blocked by district police officers and eventually taken to jail. He was charged with violating the trespass and obstructing a police officer.
