Lawsuit: Newberg school board violated public meetings law

Attorney Tyler Smith (third row, right) has appeared at multiple Newberg school board meetings since his hiring by the board in August.

Marking the first legal injunction filed against the Newberg School Board due to its recent actions, a group of seven Newberg residents leveled a significant lawsuit against the board on Friday, Oct. 22.

The filing initially was made in Yamhill County Circuit Court on Oct. 21 by veteran Portland attorney Judy Snyder.
