General Brnovich Takes Action Against Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board Officials

PHOENIX – Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a lawsuit today against current school board member and former president, Jann-Michael Greenburg, along with the entire Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD). 

"SUSD manipulated public input and silenced the voices of parents in order to advance its own agenda," said General Brnovich. "This type of bad school behavior demands expulsion." 

The lawsuit seeks to have Greenburg removed, impose civil penalties on the board, and ensure no future Open Meeting Law (OML) violations occur.

The complaint alleges SUSD violated the OML by knowingly structuring an agenda and meeting so as to prohibit public comment about a proposed mask mandate and other subjects within the jurisdiction of the SUSD Governing Board, knowingly applying unauthorized content-based restrictions on public comment made during a board meeting, and knowingly cutting off or otherwise interrupting speakers during a call to the public.
