A former campus police chief is suing Western Kentucky University after the school commissioned an investigation into his leadership.  Robert Deane says the school created a hostile work environment after the report was released, and forced him to retire. 

WKU Vice President of Student Affairs Brian Kuster and Leadership Strategies Group, which wrote the report, are also named as defendants in the lawsuit. 

Deane’s complaint alleges negligence and defamation after a newspaper article was published based on the report.
