LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Two Las Vegas attorneys say the Clark County Board of Trustees may have violated the open meeting law when they selected Pat Skorkowsky as superintendent Tuesday night.

They are concerned the wording on the agenda wasn't specific enough and the public did not have enough notice of the vote.

Tonight News 3 has learned a concerned citizen has put in an official complaint with the attorney general's office. News 3's Elizabeth Donatelli is at district headquarters where the vote took place and has more on who enforces this law.

The state attorney general's office enforces it following the guidelines in a 132 page manual.

The meeting at question started on Monday night but went so long the board continued it Tuesday evening.

Clark County School District trustees initially debated if the search for the new superintendent should be local or national.

It turned into a brief interview with interim superintendent Pat Skorkowsky followed by a surprise vote. The small crowd of people applauded the outcome.

The agenda reads: There will be "possible action" on the "search and selection of a new superintendent" Board members asked two attorneys at the meeting if they could vote and they said yes because it had been on the agenda for so long.

News 3 spoke with two attorneys not connected with the vote who say the language was too vague on an issue of importance to the public.
