Radtke v. Chester Twp. 2014-G-3222ADMINISTRATIVE LAW - governmental information; public meetings; Sunshine Legislation; appellant challenged resolution granting conservation easement to land conservancy as being in violation of Open Meetings Act because in three conversations before the resolution was passed a representative of the conservancy met with one trustee at each session to provide information to that single trustee about the benefits of a conservation easement; "meeting" for purposes of the Act requires deliberation by a majority of the members of a public body about the public body's public business; because only one board member attended each of these sessions, there was no meeting and the sessions thus did not have to be held in public; since only one board member was present at each meeting, there could not be any discussion between board members, which is the predicate of a meeting subject to the Act.RiceGeauga 9/30/2015 9/30/2015 2015-Ohio-4016
