“Meeting Regulations” Posted Along with Every Ridgewood BOE Agenda Maybe Considered Unlawful and Unconstitutional

Ridgewood NJ, In light of the current lawsuit being heard in Hudson County Superior Court, in which a man claims his freedom of speech rights were violated when he was ejected from a public meeting for making comments not appreciated by those running the meeting, could these “Meeting Regulations” posted along with every Ridgewood BOE agenda be considered unlawful/unconstitutional and, therefore, expose Ridgewood taxpayers to potentially expensive litigation?

 “Comments shall be limited to issues. If personal remarks or discourteous statements are
made, the presiding officer shall require the speaker to stop.”
