Matter of Janet Wilson v Board of Education of Harborfields Central School District

In this Article 78 proceeding, Petitioner Janet Wilson sought to review a determination of the Board of Education of the Harborfields Central School District declining to extend her employment contract. Supreme Court granted her appeal which resulted in the Board pursuing an appeal.

Petitioner alleged that the meeting in which the Board passed their resolution declining to extend Petitioner’s employment contract had inadequate notice pursuant to the Open Meetings Law. The Court felt that even if there was a technical violation, Petitioner failed to establish good cause to annul the Board’s determination.

Accordingly, the Supreme Court reversed the judgment, denied the petition and dismissed the proceeding.
