One City School Lawsuit Trying to Reach an Accord
St. Loius, MO – Two sides in a lawsuit over the St. Louis School Board loan plan are trying to reach an accord.
The suit deals with the board's attempt to borrow money from the desegregation settlement fund. The lawyer who represented students in that desegregation case, William Taylor, is negotiating with the Board.
He sued to block the move, saying it violates the terms of the settlement. The money in the fund is supposed to only be for school construction, but the district struck a deal with the state this month to allow the money to be used for general expenses.
