Douglas County School District spent $186,000 in legal fees fighting open meeting violation

The Denver Gazette: The Douglas County School District has spent more than $185,000 — and counting — defending board members against a lawsuit stemming from the firing of former Superintendent Corey Wise, The Denver Gazette has learned.

The true costs are likely more.

That’s because the tally does not include any expenses incurred over the last three weeks. And it doesn’t include the roughly $94,000 state Rep. Bob Marshall, who brought the lawsuit, has spent in attorney fees.

This puts the cost at nearly $300,000, district invoices show.
