Rogers vs. Roxbury

Another week, another court case involving the Roxbury school board.

The suit board member Chris Rogers filed against the school board is set for a hearing at 1:30 pm Wednesday in state Superior Court, Morristown. This is the case where Rogers wants the district to e-mail him copies of  legal bills run up by the school board attorney. The district says Rogers can come see them. Some may think that there is nothing wrong with the school board’s approach, but the feeling here is that the law says the bills must be e-mailed if they are in that form.

Rogers should win this case.

One Response to Rogers vs. Roxbury

  1. Ted Doty says:

    A case manager from the Government Records Commission forced the RTBOE BA to email requested documents to one parent free of charge, whether they were in digital format or the district has the means to convert.

    Recently, I was emailed over 300 pages of a purchase order report. relative to an OPRA request…it didn’t fulfill my request but the documents were sent. Currently I have a “Denial of access” complaint before th GRC

    Yes, Chris should win this one
