Ohio Open Meetings Law: Our client writes of recent win against the City of Milford

Judge Jerry McBride presided over State ex rel. Richardson v. City of Milford

Our client, former Enquirer reporter Rachel Richardson, tired of its repeated violations of Ohio’s Open Meetings Law sued the City of Milford.

The City decided to defend the case with vigor, claiming that Richardson could not prove her case that impermissible topics were addressed behind closed doors, inasmuch as what occurred in those illegal closed meetings was subject to attorney-client privilege.  In other words, because what they said was secret, we could not prove it violated Ohio law.

Once Judge McBride ruled that the City could not keep their illegal deliberations secret, the case quickly settled.
