Fairfax County School Board and Officials Subpoenaed

Thursday, February 17, 2011 - Fairfax County, Virginia – Documenting violations under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as continuing to mount, a fourth count has been added to the recent FOIA case against Fairfax County Public Schools and the Fairfax County School Board. The case, filed today in Fairfax County Circuit Court, was temporarily held due to FCPS’ efforts to enter the case in an evidentiary trial rather than a hearing as motioned by the Petitioner.
The David v. Goliath case centers around accountability demanded by the Petitioner, Jill D. Hill, a Fairfax County resident, for an extensive array of Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Law violations by FCPS and the School Board.
Patton Boggs, LLP, counsel for Hill, and FCPS attorneys will appear in the Court’s calendar control Friday morning, February 18th, to set the trial date. Under Virginia law, FOIA cases are required by statute to be heard in seven (7) calendar days. The statute does not permit exceptions for weekends or holidays.
Among those for whom subpoenas were issued in Fairfax County Circuit Court today are school officials:
§  Dean Tistadt;
§  Paul Regnier;
§  Pam Goddard; and
§  Sara Kolb
In addition, the School Board in its entirety were issued subpoenas:
§  Judith Wilson;
§  Jane K. Strauss;
§  Daniel G. Storck;
§  Kathy L. Smith, Chairman;
§  Patricia S. Reed;
§  James L. Raney;
§  Ilryong Moon;
§  Martina Hone;
§  Stuart D. Gibson;
§  Sandra S. Evans;
§  Brad Center, Vice Chairman; and
§  Elizabeth Torpey Bradsher
