Kansas Supreme Court Denies Local District's Request To Intervene In School Finance Suit

The Kansas Supreme Court held yesterday that a local school district could not untimely intervene in a school equity funding lawsuit. The state supreme court acknowledged that the interests of Shawnee Mission School District No. 512, which wanted to eliminate a cap on the local option budget, were not adequately represented by the suit's defendants, the State of Kansas. However, the court concluded, the District could not overcome it's untimely entry into the case. The court noted that the district could file an amicus brief to voice its interests. The case is Gannon v. State, No. 113908 (Kan. Sept. 21, 2015): http://www.kscourts.org/Cases-and-Opinions/opinions/SupCt/2015/20150921/113908.pdf
