Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.
– Justice Louis Brandeis.
On Tuesday, October 24, Finney Law Firm’s Brian Shrive will give a talk to EmpowerU on Ohio’s Sunshine Laws: the Open Meetings Act (R.C. 121.22) and Public Records Act (R.C. 149.43).
Brian has represented citizen activists in litigation involving both the Open Meetings Act and the Public Records Act (together the Sunshine Laws), helping force the public’s business into the sunshine. Learn what resources are available to you as a citizen and activist, and how to make use of those tools.
In recent years, Finney Law Firm attorneys have helped citizen activists use the Sunshine Laws requests to uncover illegal use of public funds for political purposes and secret meetings of elected officials.
Empower U is located at 225 Northland Blvd., Cincinnati, OH 45246, at 7 p.m.
You can also view the presentation through the online, virtual classroom.
