Wake Reassignment Lawsuit Dismissed
Posted July 20, 2004
RALEIGH, N.C. — The state Court of Appeals has dismissed a reassignment lawsuit in Wake County as moot or irrelevant.
Jack and Cynthia Sullivan sued to get their special-needs son into a year-round school after he was denied a spot in the lottery system two years in a row.
Their son, John, has since been selected through a random process.
The Wake County School System's attorney filed a motion to have the case considered moot.
The court's opinion appears to be related to old arguments in the case.
