The Court of Appeals Addresses Closed Sessions for Attorney-Client Discussion

Record #:
In a February 2000 ruling, the North Carolina Court of Appeals ruled that a public body may meet with its attorney in closed session even when there is no pending suit against the public body. It can meet to discuss any legitimate matter within the attorney-client privilege. Lawrence reviews the court's decision and suggests practical implications.
