Bullis Charter School files new lawsuit

Bullis Charter School filed a new lawsuit against the Los Altos School District over their 2012-2013 facilities offer Wednesday (Sept. 12).

The charter school filed suit while still waiting for Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Patricia Lucas' judgment on a previous lawsuit. Charter officials filed a writ to compel against the Los Altos School District asking Lucas to rule on where and how the school should be housed. Her decision is pending.

Their new lawsuit has similar arguments to their writ to compel, with additional complaints about the lack of facilities at the start of the school year.

"None of this is a surprise," Doug Smith, Los Altos School District Trustee, wrote in his blog Wednesday (Sept. 12) night. "Most of it is copy/ paste from prior suits and their various last-minute additions to their earlier motion. As I said, I look forward to a complete and full airing of the facts. I think that the Judge will determine that we've followed the law, and acted within our reasonable discretion as elected trustees."
