NJ Library Sued Under Open Public Meetings Act

A public library in New Jersey had a child viewing Internet p 0 r n in the kid's section of the library in January 2015. The mom complained. The library reacted by ensuring kids could continue to view the unfiltered Internet in the children's section of the library. They did this by changing library policy to add the American Library Association recommendations that accomplish that goal. While doing that, they repeatedly blocked the public from observing those policy changes.

For having repeatedly violated the civil rights of the public under the Open Public Meetings Act, I sued the library by exercising my First Amendment right to do so. That was in January 2016, an entire year since the kid viewed the harmful material in January 2015 and the library did nothing but ensure ALA policy was used to keep the computers unfiltered in the children's section.
