Time will tell how the 9th District Court will rule in the case of Sandy Ress v. Teton County Hospital District Board of Trustees, and we will reserve judgment until its adjudication.

But we agree with Ress on one point: The best possible outcome of this lawsuit would be for the hospital board, lawyers and public information specialists to craft a set of best practices for any and all Wyoming boards to meet both the letter and the spirit of the state’s open meetings laws.
