RENO, Nev. (AP) — The state attorney general's office is looking into whether the Washoe County School Board violated opening meetings laws after the arrest of a university professor who was denied entry to a meeting earlier this month.

Larry Dailey, who teaches journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, filed the complaint with the state last week

He told the Reno Gazette-Journal he plans to sue the district for a violation of his First Amendment rights.

Dailey was arrested on June 11 for violating a trespass warning given to him in February.

He tried to enter the school district's office several times during a board meeting but was blocked by district police officers and eventually taken to jail. He was charged with violating the trespass and obstructing a police officer.

Need more info here. Was it a closed meeting to discuss Personnel items only, or were there other items on the agenda? Did they post the Agenda in the required time line? Should be pretty straight forward to determine if it was a violation of the Brown Act.
