Douglas County School Board parts ways with original legal defense team in Sunshine Law lawsuit

Colorado Community Media: The Douglas County School Board has parted ways with its original legal defense firm in a lawsuit alleging some directors broke open meetings laws, as the board pursues an appeal of a judge’s order that determined some directors broke both the spirit and letter of the law.

The board’s motion to dismiss the case, filed by its former law firm, has also been denied, and the case will move forward.

Douglas County resident Robert Marshall filed suit against the board Feb. 4 alleging the four majority directors Mike Peterson, Becky Myers, Christy Williams and Kaylee Winegar broke Colorado’s Sunshine Laws by holding a chain of private, one-on-one meetings to plan the removal of former Superintendent Corey Wise.
