Arkansas court won't rehear Little Rock schools case

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court says it won't reconsider its decision that the state Department of Education can't be sued over its takeover of the Little Rock School District.
Justices on Thursday denied a petition to rehear its October ruling granting the state's appeal of a lower court's decision. A Pulaski County Circuit Court judge in March denied the state's request to dismiss the lawsuit, ruling the state could be sued for its decision to take over the Little Rock district and dissolve its school board.
The state Supreme Court overturned that ruling.
The lawsuit was filed by former members of the Little Rock School Board. The state education board's takeover vote last year came after six Little Rock schools were determined to be in academic distress.
