Fisk University cuts ties with president after allegations
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Fisk University says it has ended its relationship with its president two weeks after placing him on leave over allegations in a temporary order of protection that an acquaintance sought against him.
A statement from the university does not mention the order of protection against Kevin Rome, and a spokeswoman on Monday declined to say whether Rome was fired.
A Davidson County magistrate judge signed the temporary order forbidding Rome from having contact with the man earlier this month.
Rome’s attorney, Jay Steed, was not immediately available for comment Monday afternoon.
