RALEIGH — The former chancellor of North Carolina State University has arrived to testify before a federal grand jury that is seeking details about former first lady Mary Easley’s employment at the school.

James Oblinger entered the federal courthouse in Raleigh shortly before 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. His lawyer would not comment.

Oblinger was subpoenaed last month, with federal investigators requesting access to all documents related to Easley’s hiring and benefits.

Oblinger resigned last week as the university released e-mails showing that he played a role in Easley’s hiring. He said he did not recall his contribution until reading the e-mails and said the hiring involved no impropriety and no coercion.
