Subject: FW: Open Meetings Law - judicial proceeding
In keeping with the opinion articulated below, I believe that if a mediation proceeding is initiated
either pursuant to court order or subsequent to the commencement of litigation, it would be a
"judicial or quasi-judicial proceeding" exempt from the Open Meetings Law (section 108(1)).
I hope this is helpful to you. If you would prefer a formal advisory opinion please let me know. Thank
Camille S. Jobin-Davis, Esq.
