Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino claims the city school board violated the state's open meetings law when it hired new schools superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown.
Paladino has filed papers asking the State Supreme Court to block Brown's hiring and toss out her contract which also provides her with an $800 a day consultant fee prior to final contract approval.
The board voted 7-2 for Brown at its June 13 meeting. The vote was taken after a lengthy executive session with no public discussion.
A court hearing on the matter is set for next Wednesday.
