Judge Leo E. Green Jr. on Wednesday issued a written order unsealing the minutes of the two closed sessions of the Board of Charles County Commissioners, effectively bringing to an end nearly ten months of speculation and rumor about the events that led to a landmark lawsuit over District 2 Commissioner Thomasina Coates’ (D) authority to vote on the employment contract of the county administrator.
Copies of the minutes are available in TLR’s document library:
- Minutes of the Closed Session of the County Commissioners, Tuesday, June 9, 2020 (UNREDACTED AND UNSEALED)
- Minutes of the Closed Session of the County Commissioners, Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2022 (UNREDACTED AND UNSEALED)
TLR will be providing in-depth summaries of last week’s hearing and next week’s closing arguments, as well as Judge Green’s final ruling, but as a matter of public interest TLR has decided to make copies of the minutes available immediately without analysis. Stay tuned to this site and to TLR’s Facebook page for updates as they happen.
