MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama State University trustees say they won't decide the fate of the school's suspended president because his mother died.
Joseph Silver's mother died Thursday night. Trustees had planned to discuss Silver at their Friday morning meeting.
Silver contends he was suspended after raising questions about financial matters at the Montgomery school, including concerns about undisclosed contracts. Silver tried to fire two top university officials.
ASU officials have denied any financial wrongdoing at the school.
Silver previously served as Provost of Clark Atlanta University.
