(WDAY TV) -- The former general counsel for the State Board of Higher Education is now speaking out saying he was forced out because of clashes with the chancellor.

Pat Seaworth says battles with Hamid Shirvani were over alleged open meetings violations. Over the weekend the board did call a special meeting on Thursday to review the allegations.

Meantime, some lawmakers are taking a stronger stance on Shirvani's future saying if the allegations are substantiated he should be fired. Previously multiple groups have asked the state to buyout Shirvani's contract.
