Chaffey College student government held second secret meeting, reporters allege

CALIFORNIA — Just weeks after Chaffey College administrators publicly rebuked student government for holding an illegally closed meeting, reporters at the school say rumors abound of another secret meeting held by Associated Students of Chaffey College.
In two closed sessions last month, board members at Rancho Cucamonga’s Chaffey Community College voted to remove student body president Kevin Coduto. Ryan Geluz, a reporter for the school’s student newspaper, The Breeze, was at one of the meetings and protested that its closure violated the Brown Act.

Classic journalism ethics! Casting light in dark corners. Holding the powerful accountable to those that elected them. Reminding the voters that their are laws in place that allow them to know what's going on.

But does the Brown Act - a classic 'sunshine' law - apply at a private U like ours? I recall the ASUSF senate's bylaws give it wide leeway to cast out members of the audience, reporters included. This is a question for Brother Ed Lenert!
