Judge sets deadline in Arizona English language learning case
Published: January 27, 2011 at 8:13 am
A federal judge has set a March deadline for filing of briefs that represent the next stage in a decades-old court fight over adequacy of the state’s instruction of students learning the English language.
U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins set the deadline after holding a 22-day hearing that concluded earlier this month.
Collins has taken the case under advisement and is expected to rule after reviewing briefs and other legal papers that the sides are to file by March 10.
The case was originally filed in 1992 on behalf of children and parents in the Nogales school district.
