Appeals court BISD election ruling in
BEAUMONT - The Ninth Court of Appeals in Beaumont released its opinion today in the Beaumont school election case.
According to the order, A November election that the school board approved should not take place.
Here are the highlights of the court ruling. The judges said a November election would violate state law because it would not be a joint election with the city, state or county.
The judges said three candidates who filed to run in the election -- Marcelino Rodriguez, Donna Forgas and Linda Gilmore are not eligible under a plan that might have allowed them to take office automatically because three incumbent board members didn't file in time.
