LISD vs. Gay Straight Alliance: LISD Wins Round One

The legal battle between the Lubbock Independent School District and a gay student organization continues, but on Wednesday a federal judge ruled in the district's favor.

Federal Judge Sam Cummings granted Former Superintendent Jack Clemmons immunity, dismissing him from the case. Cummings ruled Clemmons did not violate policy when denying the students the opportunity to meet on campus. Clemmons was named in the lawsuit along with present Superintendent Wayne Havens and Deputy Superintendent Fred Hardin.

However, the judge has not issued a final ruling on whether the district discriminated against the group.
