UH president asked regents for $2 million

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood asked through her lawyer that she get a $2 million payout to be released from her duties.

The request was pulled about a month later.

Hawaii News Now reports that Greenwood attorney Jerry Hiatt sent the letter to regents on Oct. 2. The letter says that, "Dr. Greenwood has regrettably concluded that she has not been given the ability to function independently, as is required of the office of the President of UH, and that she has been severely defamed."

Greenwood is under scrutiny for her handling of the athletic department's botched Stevie Wonder fundraising concert.

The letter says Greenwood would be willing to be released from her university duties for $2 million.

The request was withdrawn a week ago.
