Guthrie v. Dalton City School District was a case before the Georgia Court of Appeals in 1994 concerning open meetings laws.

Background

Guthrie v. Dalton City School District, 213 Ga. App. 849 (1994) (McMurray, J.): Appeal from trial court's grant of partial summary judgment to defendant school district voiding a settlement agreement that had been reached between the board of education and plaintiff school teacher as violative of the Open Meetings Act. The trial court (Pannell, J.) reasoned that because the board had approved the settlement agreement outside of an open meeting, the board's action violated the Act. The Court of Appeals reversed, holding that defendant's challenge to the action taken at the meeting was not brought within 90 days, as required by O.C.G.A. § 50-14-1(b).[1]
