FOCUS SHIFTS FROM COURT TO BALLOTS
ON CLASS I SCHOOLS ISSUE
U.S. District Judge Lyle Strom decided today to wait to rule on a key case involving Nebraska's Class I elementary-only country schools until after the Nov. 7 election, when voters will decide whether to keep the Legislature's forced consolidation law in effect or repeal it.
The judge's ruling would be moot if voters decide to stay with Legislative Bill 126, the consolidation law. It's most likely they'll repeal, though, and he can just take up the matter then.
Still, this sensible decision probably saved federal taxpayers a pretty penny in needless keystrokes, so good job, Judge.
