The city should win this hands down. There was an explicit agreement of privacy and there was an effort to make it appear there was privacy. Why is this so complicated? Did you read the details? The meeting agreed to as "private" was in a room guarded by guards and people were kept out of the meeting to assure this agreed upon privacy.
This thread is a joke and is pointless.
And your comment "(Don't look for it unless you're a subscriber, I'm claiming fair use for this post)" I don't get, the court information is public information.
To assume, or imply this has anything to do with recording Police or Public officials in public is disingenuous in the least and careless at best. It frustrates me that I now am placed in agreement with the City of Detroit, as this is a first. But to agree to something in total then seconds later violate this agreement is disgusting and I hope they pay and pay and pay.
