Mecklenburg County judge officially dismisses lawsuit against CMS and NCAE

A Mecklenburg County Superior Court judge has officially dismissed all claims in a lawsuit filed by a group of Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools parents who were unhappy about the district providing remote instruction during the pandemic.

Judge Karen Eady-Williams found that the plaintiffs had not established a Constitutional violation of the right to a sound basic education since the district was simply utilizing an instructional approach authorized by the governor.

She noted the facts as presented by the plaintiffs did not support “an illegal contract” between CMS Board and the North Carolina Association of Educators and also said facts didn’t show that remote instruction constituted an illegal work slowdown.

The judge’s order was filed today, and you can read it in its entirety below:
