Former FAMU IG to get $90,000 and a job



Famulogo FAMU must pay former Inspector General Michael Brown $90,000, reinstate him to a three-year job at the FAMU Foundation and pay his lawyers $25,000, according to a settlement agreement signed this week by FAMU President James Ammons and obtained this morning by the Gradebook.

Brown was fired last year by then-interim President Castell Bryant after he began looking into allegations that her administration was distorting the true state of FAMU finances. His removal, though, helped fuel a backlash against Bryant. Did Brown get the last laugh? Read the settlement here.
