Arizona Attorney General’s Office files suit against Scottsdale Schools in Maricopa County Superior Court

Records: suit seeks removal of Greenburg, civil penalties

Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office has filed a lawsuit against the Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board stemming from an alleged open meeting law violation during a meeting when former Governing Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg presided over a public hearing.

“SUSD manipulated public input and silenced the voices of parents in order to advance its own agenda. This type of bad school behavior demands expulsion.”

— Mark Brnovich, Arizona attorney general

The lawsuit seeks to have Greenburg removed, impose civil penalties on the board, and ensure no future open meeting law violations occur, according to a press release.

A part of the formal complaint at Maricopa County Superior Court is the allegation the Governing Board violated open meeting law by knowingly structuring an agenda and meeting so as to prohibit public comment about a proposed mask mandate and other subjects, officials at the Attorney General’s Office report of the court filing.
