Camden County v. Haddock was a case before the Georgia Supreme Court in 1999 concerning open meetings laws.

Background

Camden County v. Haddock , 271 Ga. 664 (1999) (Fletcher, J.): Former county employee sued county, county commission, individual commissioners, and administration, alleging violations of procedural due process and the Act in connection with her discharge. The trial court entered summary judgment for employee, and county appealed.

Reversed. The Act provides that county commission meetings must be open to the public, but there is an exception when personnel matters are discussed. Thus, the county commission did not violate the Act when its members discussed former county employee's performance at meetings prior to her termination by county administrator.[1]
