Judge rules Palos Verdes Peninsula school board violated the Brown Act

September 11, 2017 by Cynthia Washick via Daily Breeze | School Boards

A Superior Court judge has ruled that the Palos Verdes Peninsula school board twice violated California’s open meetings law in 2016 as it was putting an end to an agreement to install solar panels in district schools.

Judge William Fahey, in a tentative ruling Sept. 5 that likely will stand, sided with a group of residents who sued the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District Board of Education for alleged violations of the Brown Act.

The Los Angeles Superior Court judge admonished the board for violating the law, but stopped short of requiring district leaders to alter how they run public meetings.
