    I move that the Board go in to executive session to discuss with its attorneys the legal ramifications of and legal options for pending litigation, controversies not yet being litigated but imminently likely to be litigated or imminently likely to be litigated if the Board pursues a proposed course of action.

    In addition to the motion, second, and vote to go into executive session, the following should be made a part of the minutes as received from the school attorney:

    I am familiar with the reasons for the proposed executive session and it is my opinion that the pending litigation exception in the Open Meetings Act applies to the planned discussion during the executive session.

    The board will be in executive session for approximately 45 minutes. No action was taken.
