Shelby County Chancellor Walter Evans will allow a lawsuit to continue that was filed by citizens against the city of Lakeland, a suburb of Memphis, over a proposed new high school, The Commercial Appeal reports. Residents who filed the suit say plans for the school go against a 2015 vote that rejected a $50 million bond issue for the construction. Lakeland’s board of commissioners and mayor approved a financing plan earlier this month for a bond of $60 million. Evans denied yesterday a motion from the city to dismiss the suit.
