Judge orders Douglas County school board majority to comply with Colorado Open Meetings Law

Denver7: A Douglas County District Court judge granted a preliminary injunction against the four majority board members of the Douglas County school board that requires them to follow the Colorado Open Meetings Law.

Judge Jeffrey K. Holmes granted the preliminary injunction against Board of Education President Mike Peterson, Vice President Christy Williams, Becky Myers and Kaylee Winegar – the “Kids First” board majority – which orders them not to talk about public business or take any formal actions by three or more board members either as a group or through a series of meetings – except in public meetings that are open to the public.

The lawsuit against the board members was filed by Robert Marshall, a Douglas County resident, after the board majority discussed firing then-Superintendent Corey Wise several days before they formally fired him in a 4-3 vote at a meeting on Feb. 4 and without hearing public comment.
