File this under....Round 2?

The Dominion Post in Morgantown reported via Twitter this afternoon that West Virginia Radio has filed suit against West Virginia University, “seeking injunctive relief” to halt the bidding process for the school’s multimedia rights.

Both the newspaper and West Virginia Radio are owned by businessman John Raese who raised ethical concerns this winter about the original bidding process that had awarded the rights to IMG College when the school decided to outsource them for the first time.

The process was eventually reviewed by the Attorney General’s office and West Virginia then had to begin the process anew. Those bids were due June 18.

According to newspaper’s twitter account, the suit names the West Virginia Board of Governors, the WVU Foundation, West Virginia Media, Bray Cary, AD Oliver Luck, President Jim Clements and Drew Payne as defendents in the suit.

MetroNews, which is also part of West Virginia Radio Corp., also put out a story with a link to the suit.
