Today the Court granted a motion by DeKalb County Schools (the defendant) for a continuance in the TSA lawsuit. So, there will NOT be a hearing on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 concerning class-action status as previously announced. We don’t have any further information, but we will let you know as soon as we do.
Yes, that’s right, folks. Instead of doing the right thing, DeKalb County Schools (Thurmond and the Rubberstamp Board) chooses to spend more of our money on a case they are sure to lose. These tax dollars should be going into the classroom but are being spent on billable hours for DeKalb County Schools’ attorneys. Instead of doing the right thing, DeKalb County Schools has decided to delay making our teachers whole — worst salary and benefits, worst working conditions, and now, worst retirement, ever (many teachers who have spent their entire workinglife with DeKalb County Schools will retire to poverty and foodstamps).
The hearing is rescheduled for October 14th and 15th 9 AM, courtroom 6A in the Superior Court of DeKalb County. This information is from an email from Barnes Law Group. Seating in the gallery is limited if you would like to sit in on the hearing and get the full details.
