Eastern now has an additional ten days to respond to the appeal. Alumnus Jay Sinclair hired an attorney after EMU partially granted the FOIA request and only gave him three documents. Sinclair wants more transparency for the center that's known as Fish Lake in Lapeer. It's used by students and faculty for research.
"We certainly have the option of going to court. I already have an attorney and that's something we've talked about. So we can appeal that in court."
