Attorney general offers to teach regents lesson on open meetings

NEVADA -- In March, the state attorney general's office offered to teach the University of Nevada Board of Regents a lesson on the proper way to conduct public meetings.

Deputy Attorney General Victoria Oldenburg conducted an investigation into the board's compliance with the Nevada Open Meeting Law, in response to a complaint filed by Regent Tom Kirkpatrick against the board. She found problems with December meetings, such as vaguely written agendas, leading up to the hiring of Richard Moore as founding president of Nevada State College in Henderson.
