In Nebraska, as in most other states, most actions by public officials are subject to compliance with state public meeting or open meeting law requirements. Failure to comply with open meeting requirements can lead to a court’s declaring the action taken by public officials to be invalid. Such was the case in a zoning decision involving a dairy expansion in Antelope county. Alderman v County of Antelope, 11 NebApp 412 (Sep. 24, 2002).
