TRENTON — Rutgers University’s board of governors did not violate the state’s public meeting notification requirements when it discussed issues about the school’s new football stadium in 2008, but it didn’t provide a detailed enough notice about the meeting and it strayed off topic during closed discussions, the Supreme Court ruled today.
The unanimous ruling handed a partial victory to Rutgers alumnus Francis McGovern Jr., a lawyer who challenged how the meetings were held, but it handed the school a bigger win by declaring the school was mostly in compliance with open public meeting laws.
