[Davis County Watch: Citizenship] Davis Parents sue School Board

A group of Davis Parents have sued the County School board for convening six closed door meetings surrounding a proposed boundary change. The board says the meetings were not of a 'public body', and so can be closed.

This lawsuit should clarify whether a 'special committee' is considered a 'public body', or not.

Davis Parents sue District

Update: A judge has issued a restraining order to prevent the boundary change from occurring. The court will reconvene in December.

My thoughts: The School District needs to settle out of court-take whatever hit is required, and move on. This could have, rather should have, been handled without a lawsuit.
