A coalition of low-wealth school districts in Georgia has withdrawn its finance lawsuit against the state, just weeks before a trial was set to begin, because the case was transferred to a new judge. The previous judge had been presiding over the case for three years. Joseph G. Martin Jr., the executive director of the Consortium for Adequate School Funding, said in a press release the group plans to refile the case in another state court.
