OM 19-22 Hevey v. Coventry Town Council No Violation

The Complainant alleged that the Town Council violated the OMA when the Town Council President made statements during a public meeting that appeared to indicate the existence of conversations outside the public purview concerning the reappointment of municipal and probate judges. After requesting and receiving affidavits from all five Town Council members, we found no evidence of a collective discussion by a quorum of the Town Council outside the public purview. Instead, the evidence indicated that the Town Council President had a general understanding of other Town Council members' views on the job performance of the judges. We accordingly found no violation.
