DETROIT (WXYZ) - Round one in the battle of Roy Roberts versus the Detroit School Board goes to both sides.
Each was seeking an injunction against the other, and the judge ruled both were partly right.
Tuesday morning in Wayne County Circuit Court, Judge John Murphy ruled that decisions made by Roberts before August 8 will be upheld. That’s when the state board of canvassers said the public could vote on a referendum to repeal public act four.
The judge, however, also said from now until the November elections, the school board will control academic decisions. Roberts will only get a say in the finances.
Roberts says he plans to meet with the school board immediately, but if they can’t agree on how to proceed, they could end up back in front of a judge.
