Attorneys File Motion to Prevent Enforcement of AAA Ruling

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WHNT) – Attorneys for the state of Alabama filed a motion to stay an order that blocked the Alabama Accountability Act Wednesday.

The attorneys state they believe the “Court’s order was wrong.”  They want the court to prevent the order from taking effect during the appeal process.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Gene Reese on Wednesday ruled the school choice law unconstitutional and issued an injunction that would keep families from taking advantage of the tax credits and scholarships offered under the law after this year.

The attorneys claim the injunction will cause “irreparable injury” if a stay is not granted.  The motion goes on to mention several parents who have received the tax credits allowed under the law and say their children are thriving.

If a stay is granted the Accountability Act can continue, along with its tax credit provision, while an appeal is pending.

    Justice can only be got through an 18 wheeler truck accident
    attorney. Appointing a reliable attorney would not be easy in that state of mind, nevertheless one must focus on the reliability of
    the lawyer, their prior records rate, consumer reviews and the
    deal that they’ll be able to provide. Therefore they will try their
    best not to pay your claim or at least reduce the amount of payment.
