Judge To Reopen School Finance Suit in January 2014
On January 21, 2014, State District Judge John Dietz will reopen the case challenging Texas school finance system in a new round of legal proceedings that could last up to four weeks. Dietz has already found the state’s school funding system unconstitutional, but wants to consider actions by the 2013 legislature before issuing his final ruling. That ruling, now expect in spring 2014, will likely head straight to the Texas Supreme Court on appeal. Stay tuned for further developments.
