Judge Rules in Favor of Common Core Advocates

A Baton Rouge judge has given common core advocates another win against Governor Bobby Jindal.

Superintendent John White says the court decision, he quoted, found that contract “was intended by all to be used in implementation of the legal requirement for nationally recognized assessment testing in Louisiana.”

The judge, Todd Hernandez of the 19th Judicial District Court, further wrote that the Jindal administration “failed to produce any evidence that the plaintiffs have violated any law concerning the procurement of state contracts.”

But the governor’s attorneys are asking for a stay and most say more litigation is expected.
