District Attorney for the Northern District v. Wayland School Committee
The issues presented, among others, are whether a school committee properly met in executive session to discuss a performance evaluation of the school superintendent; whether the school committee violated the open meeting law, G. L. c. 39, § 23B, when some members communicated by email concerning preparation of a draft performance evaluation of the school superintendent prior to a meeting.
Interested parties may file their briefs in the Office of the Clerk for the Commonwealth, John Adams Courthouse, Suite 1-400, Pemberton Square, Boston MA 02108-1724 (Telephone 617-557-1020). Parties filing amicus briefs are expected to comply with the requirements of Rules 17, 19 and 20 of Mass. Rules of Appellate Procedure. Amicus briefs, to assist the court, should focus on the ramifications of a decision and not solely on the interests of the parties filing such briefs.
