Thanks to Advance Indiana for posting on this subject. I mentioned before that some view the Open Law Door Law as a mere technicality. Mr. Welsh's comments below show why governmental agencies may take this view.
It's unclear whether Davis' ruling will have any impact on the ultimate outcome here. There's no indication the Board is going to reopen its selection process as the Governor's office would like it do, although it's decision could be voided if someone takes the Board to court. The Board could still wind up selecting Snyder even if it has to redo the process.
