The Michigan Court of Claims has denied a request by Detroit Public Schools for a temporary restraining order against DPS teachers.

They have also ordered the parties to appear for a show cause hearing on Monday, Jan. 26 at 11 a.m. in Detroit.

DPS filed the injunction on Wednesday in an attempt to get teachers back into classrooms following days of sick-outs that have shut down dozens of schools. 

We're told the sick-out is partially in response to Governor Snyder's remarks about the district in his State of the State address.

Detroit Public Schools released this statement:

"It's extremely important that the court play a role in the resolution of this issue. We look forward to the opportunity to inform the court of the serious effects that these continued sick outs have on the District, its students and their families at the hearing on Monday."
