Cahn: Getting executive sessions right
Placeholder Image
Listen up, local public bodies: the S.C. Supreme Court recently ruled in a North Augusta case which I hope will make clearer -- if not settle once and for all -- how you enter executive sessions. For years, I’ve lamented governing bodies’ proclivity for going into executive sessions by simply claiming “personnel (or employment) matters” or “contractual matters.” Very recently, I also lamented the S.C. Freedom of Information Act’s (FOIA) lack of clarity on the issue.
