OM 19-30 Burke, M v. Exeter West Greenwich School Committee Violation Found

The Complainant alleged that the Exeter West Greenwich Regional School Committee violated the OMA when it asked him to leave prior to the start of the June 26, 2018 School Committee meeting. The School Committee noted that an executive session was scheduled to take place at the start of the meeting, but we found there was no evidence disputing Complainant's contention that he was asked to leave the room prior to the open call that a public body must hold before convening into executive session. Accordingly, we found the School Committee violated the OMA. We did not find injunctive relief appropriate, nor did we find sufficient evidence of a willful or knowing violation. VIOLATION FOUND.
