Beyond the Hudok court's citation to the Von Bulow case and the Von Bulow court's elaboration on the criteria used to determine whether one is a member of the class entitled to claim the reporter's privilege, there is no law or statute that formally defines who qualifies as a "editor."
The statute does say that furnishing copies is one permissible response. It also indicates that the public body may establish fees to reimburse it for the actual cost of reproduction. Does this mean that a public body may respond with copies and a bill for reproduction costs? This should be allowed only if copies are requested and the fees understood. If there is any doubt, the public body should offer the option of the second response, and make known the time and place at which the person may inspect and copy the records. Most persons probably will prefer this latter course.
For most public bodies, there is no particular information required to be included in the notice of an emergency meeting. The notice of an emergency meeting filed by the governing bodies of the executive branch of the state must include "the date, time, place and purpose of the meeting and the facts and circumstances of the emergency."
