Rutgers’ Open-Meeting Compliance Lacking, Court Says

The board of governors at Rutgers did not violate New Jersey’s open meetings law when it discussed football stadium naming rights and an athletic marketing contract in a closed session in 2008.

But the New Jersey Supreme Court on Wednesday said the board should not have discussed athletic department policies and regulations in private.

The state’s highest court also agreed a public notice of the meeting was inadequate because it did not specify issues to be discussed.

The ruling came in a complaint filed by a Rutgers alum.
