OM 14-21 Common Cause v. I-195 Redevelopment District Commission - No Violation

The Frameworks Subcommittee did not violate the OMA when it met for a presentation because there was no evidence that any collective discussions of the members of the Frameworks Subcommittee occurred. Rather, it appears a presentation was made, and members of the Frameworks Subcommittee asked questions during the presentation. While in the proper circumstances these questions and answers could implicate the OMA, in light of the affidavits submitted by the three (3) Frameworks Subcommittee members, the evidence falls short of any collective discussions or action amongst them. The Frameworks Subcommittee members' collective presence, as well as the asking and answering of questions, is insufficient to trigger the OMA.
