Today, attorneys for the City of Cincinnati filed the self-proclaimed “Gang of Five’s” answer to the April 9, 2018 Open Meetings Complaint (read the complaint here, read additional blog posts about the case here and here).
Surprisingly, the Gang of Five deny that they conducted meetings via telephone, email, and text message. We say surprisingly, because the emails and text messages attached to the complaint make clear that the Gang of Five did conduct such meetings.
The councilmembers’ responses to interrogatories and requests for documents are due later this month, and depositions are set to begin shortly.
