LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Two top University of Louisville officials have been placed on leave in an ongoing investigation.

The Courier-Journal reports (http://cjky.it/1M4OzeD) in an email Wednesday, President James Ramsey announced that Dr. David Dunn and Priscilla Hancock will be on leave effective immediately.

Dunn is the executive vice president for health affairs and Hancock is the university's chief information officer.

Ramsey said accusations of potential misconduct were brought to the university's attention in summer 2014 after which the university police department began a review. Ramsey says during the review, the university sought assistance from the U.S. Attorney's office. Federal authorities joined the investigation this year.

The FBI and U.S. attorney's office have declined to comment to the newspaper as well as Kent Westberry, who represents Dunn, and Christie Moore, who represents Hancock.
