Attorneys for the child alleging sexual assault at Brentwood Academy have petitioned to ask a higher court to overrule Williamson County Circuit Court Judge Deanna Johnson’s ruling to dismiss their case, The Tennessean reports. They filed a “petition for the writ of mandamus” today, asking the Tennessee Court of Appeals to reverse the decision. Attorney Justin Gilbert said he wants the appeals court to force Johnson to recognize he has withdrawn the case but has the right to refile it.
