School employee termination defense

Lockland Local School District

Obtained a favorable ruling from the Supreme Court of Ohio in a case involving a challenge by a non-teaching school employee who claimed the Board of Education violated the Open Meetings Act by deliberating about the decision to terminate his employment in executive session. The Court rejected  the appellant’s argument that an employee’s “Loudermill” hearing rights could serve as a basis to demand that deliberations about his employment occur in public. This decision sets favorable precedent for districts and public bodies across the State of Ohio.
