The Georgia Supreme Court will announce Monday at 8:30 am its decision in the case of Cardinale v. City of Atlanta et. al. At issue is whether “Committee Briefings” must be advertised and open to the public under Georgia’s Open Meetings statute.
Georgia’s Attorney General Sam Olens, through his office, notified the City Council that the closed briefings violated the Open Meetings Act.
Remember, folks, the First Amendment protects all of us from overreaching government, as do the Georgia laws requiring Open Meetings and Open Records.
If you value open government, you might consider donating to the Atlanta Progressive News, who footed the bill for Cardinale’s defense of open government for all Georgians.
