This e-mail message definitely was never meant to be read by any members of the Wake County school board majority.
Jeff Shaw, director of communications for the N.C. Justice Center, sent out an e-mail message today to the attorneys in the school board lawsuit detailing the media strategy going forward. He's coordinating the PR efforts for the plaintiffs who sued the school board over alleged violations of the state's Open Public Meetings Law.
The problem is when Shaw hit reply all, the message was sent to all the school board members, including the members of the majority. Shaw said he hadn't realized that the board members were part of the chain for that message.
