Boulder County seeks dismissal of open-meetings, open-records lawsuit

Daily Camera (Boulder): A Gunbarrel woman who sued Boulder County contending it violated open-records and open-meetings laws has received copies of the documents she requested and assurances the Board of County Commissioners will not hold emergency executive sessions without first publicizing their purpose.

Kristin Bjornsen has received documents and unredacted copies of emails she that had complained in her February 2017 lawsuit had been illegally withheld from her previously.

The county attorney’s office has also written Bjornsen that Boulder County commissioners have discontinued a practice of sometimes announcing the topic of executive sessions until after they’d actually met behind closed doors.

Deputy Boulder County Attorney Trina Ruhland has written Bjornsen that any of Bjornsen’s remaining claims of county violations of Colorado Open Meetings Law and Colorado Open Records Act are now moot and that officials plan to file motions in Boulder District Court to dismiss them.
