Bobby Jindal shouldn't be deposed in Common Core case, lawyer argues

  // Monday, 11 August 2014 08:35 //

Much of a lawsuit over Common Core should be dismissed, and Gov. Bobby Jindal should not have to be deposed, lawyers for state officials argued to a Baton Rouge judge on Tuesday.

The court appearance before Judge Todd Hernandez at 19th Judicial District Court involved just one of the lawsuits that have been filed in Louisiana over the state's use of Common Core testing materials.

This lawsuit was filed by a group of teachers, parents and the New Orleans Charter group Choice Foundation. They are asking the judge to lift a suspension on testing contracts that the governor's administration imposed.

Tuesday's hearing was focused on whether the parents and other plaintiffs have legal standing to sue on the issue, and who they can force to give depositions – including Jindal, and Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols.
