A lawsuit against the Arkansas Board of Education alleges members violated the state's Freedom of Information Act through group e-mails. 

The suit brought by area resident Claudius Johnson alleges board members shouldn’t have discussed canceling a public review of charter school expansions over e-mail.  

KUAR spoke with attorney Camille Edmison about her client’s allegations against the board.

On Wednesday, we’ll post an interview with a legal scholar who says making plans through email does not constitute a public meeting, or a FOIA violation.
