Shelby County Municipal Mayors Meet to Resolve Lawsuits

A week after U.S District Judge Samuel “Hardy” Mays ruled against the Shelby County suburban municipalities' attempt at creating their own school districts, suburban leaders are not giving up. “My understanding is we're continuing to work toward the resolution of the lawsuits," Millington Mayor Linda Carter said, later adding: "We are working very hard to... reduce legal fees any way that we can for both sides." Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, Lakeland, and Millington mayors have met the past two days to discuss the education system possibilities. The Memphis Commercial appeal has the story.
