Clark County school battle continues

For the third time, a judge dismisses legal cases aimed at derailing Clark County's building of a new high school and redistricting.

Since 2007, all the legal wrangling has delayed plans to build a new George Rogers Clark High School. The latest cases were brought on by Clark County resident Shelly Haggard.

She claimed a teacher, Julie Baumgarten, and a former school board member, Minnie Spangler, broke state law in Spangler's campaign.

On Monday, a judge dismissed both cases.

Haggard is also a member of "Clark County Citizens for a Quality Education" which filed two lawsuits over plans to consolidate schools and build the new high school.

Those lawsuits were also dismissed.
