Bad Omen in Schools Case?

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.
