Douglas County School District open meetings appeal denied

Colorado Community Media: A judge has denied the Douglas County School Board’s request to reconsider or clarify an order that prohibits the board from having serial meetings to avoid Colorado Open Meeting Law requirements.

On July 6, Douglas County District Court Judge Jeffrey Holmes wrote the court “does not find that there is a manifest error of fact or law that mandates a different result or other circumstances that result in manifest injustice warranting a change in the court’s order.”

In March, Holmes ordered in a preliminary injunction that the board not discuss public business or take formal action outside of public meetings. The injunction came in response to a complaint filed by Robert Marshall, alleging school board members took action to fire former superintendent Corey Wise outside of public meetings, violating open meeting law.
