Filing Expected Today in Long-Running School Funding Case

FEBRUARY 9, 2007 - Posted at 7:26 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Agreeing to file a joint report doesn't mean that opposing sides in the Lake View school-funding case before the state Supreme Court have agreed on how to deal with issues outlined in the report.

Two special masters appointed by the high court to gather information in the long-running case are expected to get a joint report today from lawyers for both sides -- the state and districts that asked that the case be kept open so the court could monitor the state's compliance with court requirements.

But both sides cautioned Arkansans not to read too much into the word ``joint.'' David Matthews, a lawyer for the Rogers School District, said ``joint report'' doesn't mean the two sides have agreed on the issues. He said it means they have collaborated in an effort to try to narrow down the issues for the special masters' consideration.
