Q: Thank you for your helpful website. I used your Cure & Correct demand template to submit a Cure & Correct letter to the Board of Trustees and the attorney representing our school district.
My letter was sent on April 10, 2013, and it referenced several Brown Act violations related to a School Board meeting on March 12, 2013 where the decision was made to release me from my position without cause.
The attorney responded back within 30 days (on May 3, 2013 via e-mail) stating that the District determined it had not violated the Brown Act.
1. The Agenda for the Board Meeting was not posted for the public 72 hours prior to the meeting; rather, it was posted less than 8 hours prior to the meeting.
2. The Agenda that was posted less than 8 hours prior to the meeting did not contain the Closed Session action item about my release, due to the fact that only the odd numbered pages of the Agenda were posted. The even-numbered pages were on the reverse side of the odd numbered pages; so, they were not visible to the public.
I believe I only have until Friday, May 17, 2013 to take action, and I am not sure if I should contact the D.A. or file a suit in Superior Court. Do you think I need to be represented by an attorney?
