Both Sides Of Zavalla ISD Lawsuit In Federal Court

A lawsuit filed against the Zavalla School District has made its way to federal court. A hearing Tuesday ended with a case management conference scheduled for next week.

A Zavalla parent and his son filed the suit against the school earlier this year. They want the boy's placement in an alternative school reversed.

The boy was ordered to transfer to an alternative school after a teacher at the school accused the boy and a female student of participating in an inappropriate sex act at school. The boy denies the allegation.
