A federal judge in Tucson is pausing the latest hearing in an 18-year-old case over adequacy of Arizona’s school programs for students learning English.

The hearing before U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins began Sept. 1 and reached its 15th court day on Friday. It is scheduled to resume Nov. 22 for three days and again on Jan. 5 for eight more days.

A different judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in 2000 but the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that the state is entitled to a new review based on current circumstances.
