The state says reopening the long-dismissed school finance litigation would be the wrong move. In a filing to the state Supreme Court yesterday, Attorney General Steve Six said a new petition starting in District Court is the appropriate way for aggrieved districts to pursue their complaints about school finance. The original case, known as Montoy v. state of Kansas, pressured the Legislature to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into school finance in recent years. The litigation was supported by a coalition of school districts organized under the name Schools for Fair Funding. That coalition is rebuilding, and asked for the reopening of Montoy earlier this month.
