SPJ Legal Defense Fund awards grant in Charlotte case

From Greater Charlotte SPJ President Frank Barrows ….
Society of Professional Journalists Legal Defense Fund

I’m pleased to tell you that the Greater Charlotte Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has helped secure a $5,000 grant from the national organization’s Legal Defense Fund for ongoing attorney’s expenses in the case in which Mike Cozza, Bruce Bowers and others have challenged the city over the issue of open meetings.
You’ll recall that they came to one of our gatherings late last year to tell us about the litigation, which arose out of the city council’s decision to provide funding for improvements to the Carolina Panthers’ stadium.
