Black Diamond OPMA lawsuit moves along

In the most recent turn of events in the Open Public Meeting Act lawsuit against the city of Black Diamond, city council and council members, King County Superior Court Judge Janey Helson is considering whether or not to grant council members Pat Pepper, Erika Morgan and Brian Weber’s preliminary injunction and order the city to pay for their defense, at least until the final ruling in the case.

 

 

Opinion

Black Diamond should pay for council defense
