Smith County commissioners discuss lawsuit

Smith County commissioners will seek legal advice Monday regarding a lawsuit saying county officials violated the Texas Open Meetings Act.  Attorney Ken Good, who opposed the latest Smith County Jail plan, wants a court to rule that Smith County Judge Joel Baker and Commissioner Joanne Fleming held secret sessions on the jail plan.  Judge Baker says that's not the case, no laws were broken, and he welcomes the court's ruling.
