Okmulgee County Rural Water District No. 2 v. Beggs Public Works Authority



Municipality awarded attorney fees as prevailing party following decision invalidating wholesale water contract as entered in violation of Oklahoma Open Meetings Act. Opposing party argued for an exception to 12 Okla. Stat. 936 fee shifting based on the prevailing party's conduct -- here, its violation of the Open Meetings Act. The Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals held that Oklahoma law does not provide a "conduct exception" to Section 936 fee shifting. Fees awarded to municipality.
