These most frequently come up when public officials retreat to discuss personnel matters or litigation, said Bruce Moats, a Cheyenne based attorney who specializes in Wyoming open government matters and often represents the news media.
Then the body runs the risk that a judge will rule their action null and void.
The law allows public bodies to go behind closed doors to discuss the appointment or dismissal of a specific, named public employee. But voting on this has to be done in public.

the county of Natrona used this tactic a lot according to my sister, many meetings were called exclusive and the public was not allowed to be in there. she told me that they have over 30 meetings like this during the time the county was trying to figure out how to destroy their use of land by regulations. 2 to 3 times a month at times, the public could not attend. and she also told me that when opella was hired it was a closed meeting as well.
