A-15-559, Mark Koch (Appellant) v. Lower Loup Natural Resources District

Valley County, District Judge Karin L. Noakes

Attorney for Appellant: Pro se

Attorney for Appellee: Thomas S. Kruml (Kruml Law Office, PC, LLO)

Civil Action: Summary Judgment; Open Meetings Act

Action Taken by Trial Court: Koch file a complaint asking the district court to void various actions by the Lower Loup Natural Resources District (LLNRD) Projects and Program Committee taken in violation of the Open Meetings Act. He also asked the court to order the Committee to comply with various provisions of the Open Meetings Act. The district court entered summary judgment in favor of LLNRD.

Assignment of Error on Appeal: Consolidated, Koch assigns that the district court erred by: (1) granting summary judgment in favor of LLNRD; (2) determining that the LLNRD Projects and Programs Committee was a 'sub-committee' of the LLNRD Board; (3) excluding a DVD from evidence; (4) failing to take judicial notice that the LLNRD Projects and Programs Committee calls itself a 'committee' and not a subcommittee; (5) failing to take judicial notice of an LLNRD representative's statement that 'they cannot have the entire board take up every single issue'; and (6) allowing the LLNRD Projects and Programs Committee to change the date of their July meeting.
