New Jersey can go ahead with its plan to take control of most financial decisions involving the troubled Jersey City schools, under a ruling issued by a New Jersey Superior Court judge.

A state assistant commissioner of education had ruled last month that the state should have veto power until a decision is reached in the larger legal battle over the state's attempt to assume full control of the district. (See Education Week, June 1, 1988.)

A judge of the Hudson County Superior Court on Sept. 7 dismissed an appeal of that decision by the Jersey City School Board. The case was not within the court's jurisdiction, the judge ruled.

Instead, he told Jersey City's attorneys to file their appeal with the state's office of appeals.
