On October 13, 2017, Mercer County Judge Mary Jacobson issued injunctions requiring Open Public Meetings Act compliance by both the Public and Charter Schools in Princeton, New Jersey. Judge Jacobson also pointed out the irony of one board violating OPMA while suing the other for OPMA violations!
While NJFOG was not involved in this lawsuit, we hope that our affirmative litigation against other Mercer County agencies was instrumental in raising the Judge’s awareness of the Sunshine Law and helped to reduce her tolerance for repeated violations.
