Judge rejects delay, moves education financing lawsuit forward

By Christine Stuart

HARTFORD, Conn. — Hartford Superior Court Judge Kevin Dubay rejected the state’s request to delay arguments in a landmark education financing lawsuit until after the November election.

Dubay concluded that the case should move forward even though he gave himself more time to think about whether the trial should start in July or whether it should start in September after his three-week vacation.

The executive director of the Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Education Funding, a coalition of cities and towns that sued the state in 2005 for failing to adequately fund education, said that the judge did the right thing Thursday.

    Nancy, can you find out where Norwalk is on this? If memory serves me correct, Norwalk was part of this coalition with Stamford and partially funded this lawsuit and then I think either decreased funding or dropped out of the lawsuit (due to funding) a few years ago. I have since forgotten as it has been nearly 10 years already…so much for our legal system 🙂 Something for Mayor Rilling and Supt. Rivera to look into?

  2. We are still a participant in the litigation.
