In a 9-page decision, Justice Diane Nicolosi ruled for the Merrimack County Superior Court that the Merrimack Valley School District School Board violated the Right-to-Know Law. They violated the law by considering vacancies on the Board and teacher resignations during non-public sessions. They also violated the law when they voted on one Board vacancy by secret ballot. Their non-public session minutes violated the law by not recording the names of administrators who attended those sessions. The plaintiffs failed to prove that the Board didn’t address audibility problems at their public meetings. The Board was enjoined from similar future violations of the law.
