BALTIMORE (AP) -- A teacher says he's filed a formal complaint against University of Maryland President Wallace Loh over the manner in which the school handled its move from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big Ten.

Ralph Jaffe says he filed the complaint with the Maryland State Ethics Commission on Monday. Jaffe contends that Loh has not responded to his request to call an open-forum meeting by the Board of Regents, which approved the move in a closed session before Loh finalized the deal on Nov. 20.

Mike Lord of the State Ethics Commission says he was not allowed to confirm the filing of a complaint.

The University System of Maryland would not comment Monday, but noted the Board of Regents has already acknowledged its violation of the state's open meetings act.
