MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Attorneys representing clients in the Memphis City and Shelby County Schools merger lawsuit have until 12:00 a.m. Friday morning to turn in completed briefs and any material on the case to federal court judge Hardy Mayes.
Judge Mayes will be reviewing several hundred new pages of depositions taken over the last two weeks. He will eventually rule on a number of issues, including whether the Norris-Todd merger transition law is valid and whether the Shelby County Commission has the legal right to appoint a new school board.
Both sides have agreed to no trial. But, Mayes has set no deadline for issuing his ruling.
