Court delays hearing on Indiana school funding lawsuit

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A judge has delayed a court hearing on a lawsuit filed against the state by three growing school districts unhappy with the way Indiana distributes education funding.

Hamilton Superior Court officials said the hearing to determine whether the lawsuit should be dismissed was bumped from Tuesday's schedule because of an ongoing jury trial. A new hearing date hasn't been set.

Hamilton Southeastern Schools, Franklin Township Schools and Middlebury Community Schools sued the state in February, claiming the school funding formula unfairly penalizes growing districts.

The state wants the lawsuit dismissed, arguing the districts don't have the authority to challenge the constitutionality of a state law.
