OM 17-21 Valley Breeze v. North Smithfield Town Council No Violation

The North Smithfield Town Council did not violate the OMA when it convened into executive session for litigation purposes pursuant to R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-5(a)(2). A review of the executive session minutes determined that the subject-matter was appropriate for executive session. Also, the Town Council did not violate the OMA when it did not disclose the executive session vote since such disclosure would have jeopardized any strategy, negotiation, or investigation undertaken. See R.I. Gen. Laws 42-46-4(b).
