After two complaints were filed, 15th Judicial District Attorney Mike Harson concluded the Lafayette Parish School Board violated the Open Meetings Law. In his opinion, the violation came into play on April 23 when the board considered an item not listed on the agenda, which means the public was not given the required 24-hour proper notification.
Former State Representative and LPSS school board member Rickey Hardy and Lafayette attorney Gary McGoffin filed the complaints. Harson has adivised the board to nullify the vote or to list it on a future agenda.
