News Publishing Company d/b/a Rome News-Tribune v. Board of Education of the City of Rome was a case before the Georgia Supreme Court in 1991 concerning the application of open meetings laws to school board.


Background

This suit was brought by Rome News-Tribune to demand closed sessions of Rome Board of Education to consider candidates to replace board member who had resigned.

The court ruled that the Georgia Open Meetings Act excepts "meetings when discussing or deliberating upon the appointment . . . of a public officer or employee" from the requirements of the Act, permitted board to close sessions to consider appointment of new board member.[1][2]
