Board member Charles Henry.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma City School Board member seeks to permanently prevent the board from discussing his conduct.

In a motion dated July 3, member Charles Henry asks a judge for a permanent injunction to stop the board from actions that he says violate his constitutional rights to free speech and due process.

The Oklahoman reports Henry obtained a temporary restraining order June 24 after a meeting agenda included a private discussion about possible discipline against Henry but cited no specific violations. Henry voiced several complaints about the school district over social media. He has since deleted his Twitter account.

The board and school Superintendent Sean McDaniel were notified Monday of the filing and planned votes on code of ethics and disciplinary policy scheduled for Monday night were removed from the agenda.
