Marshall seeks permanent injunction against Douglas County School Board

Castle Rock News-Press: Rep. Bob Marshall, who sued the Douglas County School Board for violating Colorado Open Meetings Law, is asking the judge to reconsider issuing a permanent order barring the board from using a series of one-on-one conversations to discuss public business outside of public meetings.

Earlier this month, Douglas County District Court Judge Jeffrey Holmes ruled that school board members Becky Myers, President Mike Peterson, Christy Williams and Kaylee Winegar broke open meetings law when they had multiple one-on-one discussions about firing former superintendent Corey Wise last year. 

While Holmes declared the board’s actions were illegal, he did not issue a permanent injunction, which would have ordered the board not to engage in serial meetings in the future. Holmes said in his ruling that he didn’t think the injunction was necessary.
