“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.”
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.
