Appeals court denies Weiner school appeal

Posted By on Thu, Dec 15, 2011 at 1:10 PM

The 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals today affirmed federal Judge Jim Moody's dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the consolidation of the Weiner School District with the Harrisburg School District because Weiner's enrollment fell below the state minimum.

The 8th Circuit, in a brief order, said it upheld Moody for the reasons he'd cited. Moody said the friends of the district couldn't prove the harm they alleged from the merger, including that it threatened rice production in the region and ultimately national security.
