Sounds like council violated Brown Act?

“City Council convened last week on Tuesday, Sept. 28, for a special closed session that resulted in a 3-2 vote (Toni Iseman and George Weiss dissenting) directing the City Attorney to draft a letter to the District Attorney. The letter would be in response to the D.A. noting “evidence of substantial Brown Act violations” with the council during a June closed session regarding Hotel Laguna.”

So, it sounds like the city council violated the Brown in order to have the City Attorney draft a letter in defense or their previous violation of the Brown Act? Or am I mistaken? (
