Mother or father sues Grand Ledge Board of Schooling around FOIA reaction

GRAND LEDGE — A Grand Ledge parent is suing the Grand Ledge Public Schools’ Board of Schooling as a team, and all but one particular of its users separately, professing the board violated the state’s Freedom of Information Act in a response to her request for details about mask waiver requests the district obtained.

Renee Hultburg submitted the lawsuit in opposition to the board and 6 of its members — which include Denise Dufort, Jarrod Smith, Jon Shiflett, Sara Clark Pierson, Nicole Shannon and Patrick McKennon — in January.

McKennon is no more time a board member. Board member Ben Cwayna was not named in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit was filed in Eaton County Circuit Court docket far more than four months after Hultberg initially “questioned the district to supply mask exemptions that had been accepted,” in a Sept. 7, 2021, FOIA ask for, her attorney Eric Delaporte stated.

Hultberg’s children attended Grand Ledge universities at the time she submitted the ask for, Delaporte said, but they no for a longer time do.
