Kilgore v. RW Page Corporation was a case before the Georgia Supreme Court in 1991 concerning open meetings laws.

Background

Kilgore v. R. W. Page Corp., 261 Ga. 410 (1991) (Bell, J.): Trial court (Whisnant, J.) held that a coroner's inquest must be conducted in a manner open to the public. Affirmed. The Court held that coroner's inquest must be open under the Open Meetings Act. "[T]he Open Meetings Act does not by its terms exempt from its coverage meetings concerning a pending criminal investigation. ... Moreover, there is no provision in the Open Meetings Act granting this Court the authority to fashion a public-interest test for determining whether meetings required to be open by the Act should nevertheless be closed."[1]
