Judge: Airport violated state act in hiring ex-CEO
DETROIT (AP) - A Wayne County Circuit judge has ruled that Detroit Metropolitan Airport officials violated Michigan's Open Meetings Act during the hiring of ex-Chief Executive Turkia Mullin.
Judge Robert Colombo on Friday found multiple violations of the state act and issued an injunction against future violations.
Mullin was fired Oct. 31 by a 5-2 vote after board members returned from a closed-door meeting. She is suing the Airport Authority, claiming it violated the act.
She took the airport job after resigning in September as Wayne County's economic development director. She got $200,000 in severance after leaving the county job, but later returned the money after coming under criticism.
