Broward Hospital District Shade Meeting Transcript – August 20, 2015
As the result of my public records request (click to see request), today I received a partial response in the form of the paper court reporter transcripts for a number of shade meetings in re: Attorney/Client Meeting to discuss matters of litigation pending before the US District Court in which Broward Health is a Defendant in a False Claims Act Case.
The transcripts were for the meetings held on:
- June 4th, 2014
- September 5th, 2014
- October 22nd, 2014
- December 15th, 2014
- August 20th, 2015
I have not read the transcripts, nor have I confirmed what transcripts are missing but I wanted to post the first transcript as soon as possible. All the transcripts that have been produced are now posted.
I am reliably told that the five transcripts represent all the shade meetings in this matter, however, there were apparently many one on one meetings between attorneys & Board members in a concerted effort to keep shade meeting comments to a minimum. There are no minutes of these meetings and presumably the content of those meetings would be Broward Health attorney/client discussions thus not a subject for a public records request.
After I read & digest the content of the transcripts, I will post both my comments and analysis.
