State officially free of school finance injunction
Over at Kuff's World, I've got the news that the injunction against the state that forced it to deal with the West Orange-Cove school finance lawsuit by June 1 of this year has been lifted. All the relevant documents are posted for your perusal.
The one you really need to look at is the plaintiffs' response, which does not oppose the state's motion but which lays out their continuing concerns. Like I said on Wednesday, this is not over yet.
UPDATE: Here's the Chron story.

No surprises, really. No sane person really wanted the schools to shut down after the June 1 deadline, and few legislators are truly happy with what resulted. It was simply, in their collective opinion, the best they could do "under the gun" with such an ominous and looming day of reckoning.
This will be visited, revisited and tweaked for years to come.
