It takes FOREVER to receive FOIA’s, so now you have to think back. Susan Kalter is the chair of the Academic Senate at ISU. She wanted to hold a faculty meeting that wasn’t open to the media and didn’t comply with the Open Meetings Act. See all previous stories here: https://blnnews.com/2020/07/28/susan-kalter-explain-your-meeting-to-the-attorney-general/
In this email Kalter claimed to have consulted with University Counsel:
On August 31st I filed a FOIA Request for all communication in any form between University Counsel and Susan Kalter pertaining to the Open Meetings Act.
Since lawyers are not likely to provide verbal opinions about the law, if Susan had “consulted” something should be in writing.
I received nothing proving the statement made by Kalter is true.
Larry Dietz did send this email in August, long past the illegal meeting. I did not receive whatever he attached:
I also received this rambling email by Kalter lamenting how laws get in the way:
How can the ISU Academic Senate have any credibility with Kalter as chair if she can’t prove she “consulted” and she thinks the OMA gets in the way?
