The Post Register reports (http://bit.ly/JoFGnG) the lawsuit filed Friday in 7th District Court says commissioners broke the law on Nov. 14 when they reached an agreement with Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Robin Dunn in executive session. The Post Co. contends the meeting was illegal because of the posting of an improper agenda, a final decision was made in executive session, and commissioners didn't keep accurate minutes of the executive session. The Post Co. is requesting that actions taken by the commission on Nov. 14 be made “null and void.” The company is also wants the commission to pay legal fees of at least $3,000.
