Knoxville (WVLT) - Attorneys in the Sunshine Lawsuit are putting together instructions and questions that the jury will go by to decide if the Knox County Commission violated the State's Open Meetings Act.
The Knoxville News Sentinel, along with several citizens, are accusing the commission of violating the Act when they appointed several commissioners during a January meeting.
Chancellor Daryl Fansler Denied a request earlier today for a "directed verdict" which would have Fansler deciding if the act was violated, instead of the jury.
Fansler has not yet determined if the entire commission will be charged as a whole or if the jury will have to examine all 19 commissioners.
