News organizations ask judge to hold Denver school board in contempt for failing to release recording of closed-door meeting

The Denver Post: A coalition of news organizations has asked a judge to hold Denver’s school board in contempt for failing to meet the court’s deadline to release its recording of a closed-door meeting that members held in March following the shooting inside East High School.

Denver District Court Judge Andrew Luxen last month gave the Board of Education until noon Tuesday to release the recording or request a stay from the Colorado Court of Appeals. A stay would put the recording’s release on hold while Denver Public Schools appeals the judge’s previous ruling that found members violated state law when they met in an executive session on March 23.

The Court of Appeals had not placed a hold on the Luxen’s order by noon Tuesday, meaning it remained “in full force and effect,” attorney Steve Zansberg, who is representing The Denver Post and the other news organizations, wrote in a motion seeking a contempt ruling.
