Future of BART general manager in question

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The future of the head of the Bay Area Rapid Transit District's board of directors remains in question after a vote held behind closed doors.

Director Joel Keller says in a 5-4 vote Thursday BART directors requested the resignation of General Manager Dorothy Dugger.

But Keller told the San Francisco Chronicle that after the vote the request was rescinded because of legal concerns over the Brown Act, the state's open-meeting law.

BART spokesman Linton Johnson said he could not comment on the meeting, but said Dugger remains the general manager of the agency.

Dugger has declined to comment.
