Fiscal Court of Jefferson County v. Courier-Journal & Louisville Times Co. 61.805 Injunction directing members of fiscal court to obey the Kentucky Open Meetings Act was both overbroad and vague and, thus, erroneously granted. Fiscal Court of Jefferson County v. Courier-Journal & Louisville Times Co., 554 S.W.2d 72, 1977 Ky. LEXIS 480 (Ky. 1977). Link
Floyd County Board of Education v. Ratliff 61.805, 61.810 Injunction was proper under KRS 61.848 — even without a showing that petitioners had no adequate remedy at law — when a school board violated the Open Meeting Law by discussing a personnel reorganization plan in closed “executive” meetings; the preparation-for-litigation exception would not apply to mere discussion of whether dismissed administrators might sue the board. Also, the board failed to adhere to KRS 61.815, which requires that, before going into a closed session, a public body must state the exact exception it relies on to go into a closed meeting. Floyd County Bd. of Educ. v. Ratliff, 955 S.W.2d 921, 1997 Ky. LEXIS 145 (Ky. 1997). Link
Webster Cnty. Bd. of Educ. v. Franklin 61.805, 61.800 Action of the school board at a closed meeting could not be ratified at the open public meeting because no vote was taken during an open session and because consensus was not established. Webster County Bd. of Educ. v. Newell, 392 S.W.3d 431, 2013 Ky. App. LEXIS 31 (Ky. Ct. App. 2013). Link
