School Board Legal Updates
On Thursday, December 1, 2022, the Wauwatosa School District received a Summons and Complaint in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Case No. 2022CV007524, Michael Meier v. Wauwatosa School Board of Education et al. A copy of these documents can be found here.
This civil lawsuit represents the continuation of two previously-filed Verified Complaints dated September 16, 2022. These Verified Complaints were reviewed by Milwaukee County’s Corporation Counsel, and it was determined that the Wauwatosa Board of Education did not violate Wisconsin law regarding the open meetings at issue in the Verified Complaints. A copy of those decisions dated November 1, 2022 can be found here.
Legal counsel has been retained to represent the School Board and the District in this matter. When updates become available, they will be provided by legal counsel in open session at public School Board meetings. The meetings will be recorded, and the portion of the video that contains the update from legal counsel will be published on our website.
It is the intention of the Wauwatosa School Board to continue its focus on increasing the academic achievement and growth of students.
