A district judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Woodward Industrial Foundation in an effort to keep from having to comply with the Oklahoma Open Meeting Act and Open Records Act.
It could not be determined whether an appeal is planned. LaVern Phillips, president of the Woodward Industrial Foundation, and Cody Hodgden, the foundation's attorney, did not return telephone calls Friday.
