Delay sought in Arizona English learning court case

A federal judge is being asked to postpone the next round of hearings in an 18-year-old court case over adequacy of Arizona’s school programs for students learning English.

Lawyers for state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne are asking U.S. District Judge Raner Collins to delay hearings scheduled for January because two of the lawyers won’t be available that month to represent new Superintendent John Huppenthal.

The request says attorney Eric Bistrow is leaving private law practice to become chief deputy attorney general when Horne assumes that office in January.

And it says another attorney representing the superintendent will continue to do so but will be undergoing treatment for a medical condition in December and January.
