Fair Funding Lawsuit Has a Schedule, With a Trial Date in 2020

A December 6 order from Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court  laid out a schedule in our historic fair funding lawsuit, including a tentative trial date for the summer of 2020. Judge Renée Cohn Jubelirer issued the order and will be overseeing the pre-trial proceedings.

Along with our partners at Public Interest Law Center and O’Melveny & Myers, our attorneys are hard at work preparing for this trial. But the issues of inadequate and unfair funding that we are raising in court could be resolved by the legislature, as ELC legal director Maura McInerney pointed out in our news release.

You can find a chronology of the case as well as the relevant court documents on the Cases page of our website.
