Douglas County resident files another lawsuit against the school district over sunshine laws

Colorado Public Radio: The Douglas County School District faces another lawsuit over actions by the school board — specifically its four newest members. 

The lawsuit was filed yesterday against the district’s records manager asking a Douglas County District Court to require the records manager of Colorado’s third-largest district to explain why they won’t publicly share documents from a training retreat under the Colorado Open Records Act. 

According to the lawsuit, Mike Peterson, Becky Myers, Kaylee Winegar and Christine Williams, attended a private training retreat in Estes Park after they were elected but before they were sworn into office in November 2021. The documents that haven’t been shared publicly after a CORA request are training binders distributed at the gathering.
