The strange saga of outspoken University of Texas regent Wallace Hall of Highland Park took another turn on Tuesday, when a Grand Jury declined to indict him on misconduct charges but recommended that he be removed from his post for “unaccountable and abusive behavior.”

The Dallas Morning News has more details and documentation on the latest developments in the investigation, which stems in part from a dispute between Hall and outgoing UT system president Bill Powers regarding student admittance practices. Hall was censured last year by a state House panel.

It doesn’t sound like this power struggle is anywhere near its conclusion. Hall currently is serving a six-year term that doesn’t expire until 2017.
