Briefing Schedule Submitted In Education Ruling Appeal

The plaintiffs and defendants in the Connecticut Coalition for Justice in Education Funding v. Rell appeal, now pending in the Connecticut Supreme Court, have submitted a proposed briefing schedule for the appeal.  The schedule proposes that the parties complete all briefing by April 12, 2017.

Assuming that the Supreme Court approves the proposed schedule–and I believe it will–the Court will not hear oral argument until late April or May of 2017.  That means an actual decision by the Court is unlikely until the fall of 2017 at the earliest.

In my opinion, the proposed briefing schedule is reasonable.  This is a complex appeal with a voluminous record.  A more expedited briefing schedule would not have been realistic.
