Sentinel Colorado threatens lawsuit against Aurora, demanding private censure discussion recording be made public

Aurora Sentinel: Attorneys for Sentinel Colorado and the Reporters Committee For Freedom of the Press insisted in a letter sent to the City of Aurora Wednesday that a recording of a closed-door meeting regarding the censure of a city council member be released to the public.

If the recording is not released, The Sentinel will seek court action and request for a judge to determine whether all or parts of the recording should be made public, the letter states.

“Because the action taken behind closed-doors, and in secret, was in violation of the (Colorado Open Meetings Law), the record of the discussion, the recording, and all other meeting materials must be made available for public inspection,” attorney Rachael Johnson said in the letter addressed to City Attorney Dan Brotzman.
