Blogger sues Cumming mayor over Open Meetings incident

Blogger and local activist Nydia Tisdale has filed a federal lawsuit against Mayor H. Ford Gravitt and the City of Cumming alleging violation of Georgia’s Open Meetings Act on April 17, when Gravitt ordered her removed from City Council Chambers for attempting to videotape a regular council meeting. Her legal action follows a similar suit filed by Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens. Tisdale’s suit also names Cumming Police Chief Casey Tatum and officer Walter Cook.

The Forsyth Herald has details, including a link allowing you to read the lawsuit.
