Petition for injunction filed in BISD dispute

The legal battles continue for the Beaumont independent school district.  Attorney Mike Getz Tuesday filed a petition for an injunction in state district court.

Getz says the suit seeks to prevent the school district from implementing a resolution passed Monday night, which called for a November 2013 trustee election.

Getz argues the resolution ignores provisions of Texas law.

BISD Attorney Melody Chappell criticized Getz for, in her words, 'taking one position in DC and another here.'
