Nutt requested the meeting with McAfee shortly after that complaint and also threatened legal action. No lawsuits have been filed but it is still a possibility according to McAfee's attorney, Nate Coulter.
Nutt and his lawyer, Byron Freeland, refused to comment as they left the Commerce Capital Building. At the advice of Coulter, McAfee declined an interview because he does not want to be seen on television after receiving death threats. However, Coulter welcomed the media into his office and spoke candidly about the meeting.
Coulter said the lengthy conversation between McAfee and Nutt involved a lot of information both camps had already discussed. Coulter said there was tension in the room during the meeting but no one raised their voice or got upset. The attorney from Nashville, Arkansas also added that McAfee was very confident during the exchange but nothing was truly resolved and no opinions were changed.
As for another legal issue involving Nutt, KNWA has learned that he is scheduled to appear at a hotel in Fayetteville on May 14 for deposition in an upcoming lawsuit. It was filed by John David Terry, who claims Chancellor Dr. John White and President B. Alan Sugg failed to properly investigate an email sent from Teresa Prewett to former quarterback Mitch Mustain.
As part of the deposition, Nutt will be forced to turn over hard drives for his office and personal computer.
