Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement after filing a Notice of Appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court in Lopez v. Schwartz the ESA lawsuit:
“On Monday, a preliminary injunction was granted in the Lopez v. Schwartz ESA case. My Office was pleased that the court ruled in Nevada’s favor on two of the three claims asserted against the law, and reviewed the order with respect to the third claim. After considering our legal options, my Office on Friday filed an Appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court. As we have repeatedly done in the ESA lawsuits, we will seek an expedited ruling to ensure that thousands of Nevada families receive the clarity they need as soon as possible. My Office is working diligently so that parents can enjoy the genuine educational choice envisioned by lawmakers this past legislative session, and remains focused on resolving the matter as quickly as possible to provide families with the certainty they deserve. A ruling from the state Supreme Court will do just that.”
The filed Notice of Appeal is attached.
