“The complaint alleges that Leslie told the truth about a matter of public record. A property’s title information is not confidential — it is publicly available,” he said.
But in an email to board members sent last month, shortly after she allegedly shared the information, Grant admitted to having a conversation that violated rules about sharing information covered by attorney-client privilege.
Board vice chair Nancy Meister said the information Grant is accused of sharing had a “huge impact” on negotiations, which are now on hold. According to the complaint, Grant knew that the board’s lawyer had warned against sharing information about the property’s title with WonderRoot.
“It’s absolutely inappropriate for a board member to conduct themselves that way,” Meister said.
