Bad Omen in Schools Case?

Posted By on Thu, Jun 30, 2011 at 3:10 PM

Uh oh. On the last day to file motions in the schools merger case in federal court Thursday, the Shelby County Board of Education weighed in with a "motion to file excess pages."

It seems that under federal rules there are only so many pages that a plaintiff or defendant can file. But the matter of when and if the Memphis and Shelby County school systems can be merged is a biggie, and the motion was granted.

U.S. District Judge Samuel H. Mays has the task of plowing through all the briefs and rendering a decision. When the briefs are all in Friday, the Flyer will take a look.

Have a nice weekend, Judge Mays, and boy do I miss Tennessee Waltz.
