UPDATE: School Closure and Last Minute Filings with Deseg Judge

Posted By on Fri, Feb 1, 2013 at 1:00 PM

In this week's Tucson Weekly, we have an update on the latest filings with U.S. District Court Judge David C. Bury, the federal judge expected to make a decision next month on the nearly 40-year-old desegregation lawsuit between Tucson Unified School District and plaintiffs representing Mexican-American and African-American students.

UPDATE: TUSD school board member Mark Stegeman emailed that the letter we have from the court that he submitted to Bury is incomplete. A new letter is now linked below.

We promised to put all the filing and letters online for those interested in legal docs and such.
