Description: Kessling sued Friendswood ISD seeking access to certain information under the Texas Public Information Act (TPIA) and alleging violations of the Texas Open Meetings Act (TOMA). The trial court granted summary judgment for Friendswood ISD. I successfully prosecuted Kessling's appeal of that ruling, and had the case returned to the trial court for a hearing on the merits.
