Judge Mays rules against Municipal Schools

Star Staff Reports

Judge Samuel Mays made his ruling in the suburbs’ municipal schools situation.

Mays ruled that the creation of municipal school districts in Shelby County is unconstitutional.

The suburbs were fighting to create their own municipal school districts when Memphis City and Shelby County schools merge in 2013.

Judge Mays ruling said all the actions taken  to form municipal schools in the six suburbs,including Millington, is null and void, including the election of school board members.

The best case scenario for the suburbs is that this ruling simply delays the formation of municipal schools.

Judge Mays ruled the law clearing the way for municipal schools was unconstitutional because it only applies to Shelby County.
