    Statement on Mark Greene v. Tennessee Commission of Indian Affairs

    After reviewing material submitted by its former members and other information, the Attorney General has concluded that the notice of the June 19, 2010, meeting of the now-defunct Tennessee Commission of Indian Affairs did not disclose the Commission's intent to deliberate about and approve the applications of the six Indian tribes seeking state recognition. The Attorney General has further concluded that members of the Commission discussed these matters prior to the June meeting. These actions could be found by a court to constitute violations of Tennessee's Open Meetings Act. A copy of the Answer filed today by the Attorney General reflects these conclusions and is available
