This ethics-related case focuses on violations of the state’s Sunshine Law by city council members via their email communications. While this is a violation that is easily committed without intent, it invokes suspicions of more serious wrongdoing and is, in fact, illegal. When charges are filed and the members of the council are called into court to face a judge, the seriousness of the matter becomes real and ultimately leads to fines and resignations for and among leaders in a small city already facing serious problems throughout its leadership.
