Lawsuit against Detroit school district over in-person summer school faces setback in court


Plaintiffs in the lawsuit seeking to stop the Detroit school district’s in-person summer school classes have agreed to refile their case in Wayne County circuit court.

That was the result of a Friday court hearing before the Michigan Court of Claims, where the presiding judge told the lawyer for the activist group By Any Means Necessary that she had no jurisdiction over the district or Superintendent Nikolai Vitti, both of whom are defendants.

“Even if I agreed with everything you said, I have no power to do anything,” Judge Cynthia Diane Stephens told Shanta Driver, the attorney representing the plaintiffs.
